Then in the following white bar there is the “text style” icon.
Next to this icon the text style is mentioned that the comment will be written in the DXF output of Apglos Survey Wizard. You can change the text style by clicking on the current text style.

Every time you open a DXF file in Apglos Survey Wizard all text styles from that file will be imported. After that you can chose them here in the comment screen. We chose the text style “Apglos” and then your screen will look like this.
