CAD Screen

I have AutoCAD 2005 which is working fine.

The screen display is BLACK and I prefer to have it WHITE. How do I change the screen to get the white one?

All help appreciated.

Curved or circular text

It's probably a beginners question, but that's what I am.

I want to put text around the edge of a circle.

How do I do it?
