Sometimes the exact location of some text annotation doesn't matter. This works just like TEXT (including the property calls) except one does not specify an X,Y location. The subroutine TSCAN (modified from the Matlab LSCAN routine) automatically places the text, with a preference for the bottom/left corner.
