CATIA V6 has an embedded macro (A tool available in the toolbar) which allows the user to quickly create text as a Pad/Pocket etc. I guess the developers at DS heard the cries of many.
However as the majority of us are still on CATIA V5, without creating your own macro capable of this or using third party software, it is difficult.
There is however a free alternative method which any CATIA user can user for creating text.
