text to Mtext

Post by akoehler » Wed Jan 13, 2016 10:22 am

Coming from an AutoCAD background, there is a command to convert single line text to mtext. You can do put multiple lines of single line into one mtext box. Is there a way to do this with embedded CAD? I have a paragraph in a drawing where each line is a separate text item and I want to put them all together into one text block. I see you can group text but it doesn't make it nice to edit. Background to this...I am updating land surveying company templates so I will have to do this many more times. Thanks.

Unfortunately, the AutoCAD Express tools (including Text To MText) are not included in the AutoCAD OEM toolset so it is not in embeddedCAD.

If this is critical to your workflow, a couple potential alternatives include using MicroSurvey CAD 2016 (it's new in the latest version) or MicroSurvey inCAD which is an add-on to AutoCAD.
