Convert Text to Mtext
Due to a trip to Iowa to see my cousin Jeremy marry, last week's CAD tip is a little late.
The AutoCAD Express Tool TXT2MTXT converts individual Text entities to a single Mtext entity.
Pull down menu: Express > Text > Convert Text to Mtext
Select text objects, or [Options]
|converts these Text entities|
|to this Mtext entity|
Well, that wasn't quite what was expected. By default the conversion runs the text together making wrapped Mtext. You can control this behavior with the TXT2MTXT Options:
|to get this Mtext entity|
The resultant Mtext has no width and the lines are terminated with hard returns. You can also use Options to control the sorting order of the selected Text.
Bonus Question: What is the tool to convert Mtext to Dtext?
