I have missed having a program that would fix similar text.

Today I found it.

ENTPROP seems to work well. I could pick all the bearings N20d50'00"E
and change all of them to N20d50'E

I didn't know it and I thought I would just pass it on if others didn't know it.

Have a great day

Entity Properties dialog

Just be careful not to select point numbers, descriptions, etc., that are tied to the database as this does not update the survey database.

Also - if you update the drawing, move a point, rescale the drawing, etc., anything that would cause us to look at the database and update what is on the screen - then your edits will be history.

You could remove the bearing/distance from teh database prior to editing of course, to ensure they do not get changed back.

If you pick anything other than text, by windowing or crossing, be sure to pick the TEXT tab in the entity properties dialog, to edit the text as desired.
