The coordinates can be specified either as or as Scaled. »
In two dimensions, coordinates can also be specified using Offset. »
Text specifies an offset for the block of text relative to the coordinates given. Giving an offset specifies that the point should lie at relative coordinates within the bounding rectangle that encloses the text. Each relative coordinate runs from to across the bounding rectangle.
The offsets specified need not be in the range to .
Sample offsets to use in two-dimensional graphics include:
text centered at
left-hand end at
right-hand end at
Text specifies the orientation of the text and is given by the direction vector dir. Possible values of dir are:
ordinary horizontal text
vertical text reading from bottom to top
vertical text reading from top to bottom
horizontal upside-down text
Text in three-dimensional graphics is placed at a position that corresponds to the projection of the point specified. Text is drawn in front of all other objects.
