Mapdl.tlabel(xloc='', yloc='', text='', **kwargs)

Creates annotation text (GUI).


  • xloc – Text X starting location (-1.0 < X < 1.6).

  • yloc – Text Y starting location (-1.0 < Y < 1.0).

  • text – Text string (60 characters maximum). Parameter substitution may be forced within the text by enclosing the parameter name or parametric expression within percent (%) signs.


Defines annotation text to be written directly onto the display at a specified location. This is a command generated by the Graphical User Interface (GUI) and will appear in the log file (Jobname.LOG) if annotation is used. This command is not intended to be typed in directly in an ANSYS session (although it can be included in an input file for batch input or for use with the /INPUT command).

All text is shown on subsequent displays unless the annotation is turned off or deleted. Use the /TSPEC command to set the attributes of the text.

This command is valid in any processor.
