The text (tx) algorithm sizes text to fit inside a shape and controls its margins and alignment.

Parameter

Values

Description

autoTxRot

  • none

  • upr (upright, default)

  • grav (gravity)

Specifies how text is oriented relative to the shape.

lnSpAfChP

A double-precision numeric value from 0 through 1000. The default is 10.

Specifies the line spacing after child paragraphs.

lnSpAfParP

A double-precision numeric value from 0 through 1000. The default is 20.

Specifies the line spacing after parent paragraphs.

lnSpCh

A double-precision numeric value from 0 through 1000. The default is 75.

Specifies the line spacing of child text.

lnSpPar

A double-precision numeric value from 0 through 1000. The default is 85.

Specifies the line spacing of parent text.

parTxLTRAlign

  • l (left)

  • ctr (center, default)

  • r (right)

Specifies the paragraph alignment of parent text when the shape has only parent text; applies when the text direction is left to right.

parTxRTLAlign

  • l (left)

  • ctr (center, default)

  • r (right)

Specifies the paragraph alignment of parent text when the shape has only parent text; applies when the text direction is right to left.

shpTxLTRAlignCh

  • l (left)

  • ctr (center, default)

  • r (right)

Specifies the paragraph alignment of all text in the shape when the shape contains both parent and child text; applies when the text direction is left to right.

shpTxRTLAlignCh

  • l (left)

  • ctr (center, default)

  • r (right)

Specifies the paragraph alignment of all text in the shape when the shape contains both parent and child text; applies when the text direction is right to left.

stBulletLvl

  • 1 (top level)

  • 2 (child level, default)

Specifies whether bullets start at the top level or at the child level.

txAnchorHorz

  • none (default)

  • ctr (center)

Specifies the x-axis anchoring of the text area in a shape.

txAnchorHorzCh

  • none (default)

  • ctr (center)

Specifies that the definition can allow a different text anchoring on the x-axis, if child nodes exist in the shape.

txAnchorVertCh

  • t (top)

  • mid (middle, default)

  • b (bottom)

Specifies that the definition can allow a different text anchoring on the y-axis, if child nodes exist in the shape.

txAnchorVert

  • t (top)

  • mid (middle, default)

  • b (bottom)

Specifies the y-axis anchoring of the text area in a shape.

txBlDir

  • horz (horizontal, default)

  • vert (vertical)

Specifies whether the text block is vertical or horizontal.

horzAlign

  • l (left)

  • ctr (center, default)

  • r (right)

Aligns all the child nodes in the space reserved for the parent node and adjusts child positions along the x-axis.

vertAlign

  • t (top)

  • mid (middle, default)

  • b (bottom)

Aligns all the child nodes in the space reserved for the parent node and adjusts child positions along the y-axis.
