Text 2 MText - Multiple instances

Recommended Posts

Another recent text issue from myself...

 

OK, so recently I discovered the TXT2MTXT command and how wonderful it is, but there is one thing missing which would help me out a lot. Is it possible to change multiple texts, but separately WITHOUT having to re-issue the command? I've experimented with some of the in command options, but unless I'm missing something, nothing seems to work.

 

Preferably, I would like it to work like the FILLET -> Multiple command, so I could select a group of texts, convert them then select another group etc, but the 'multiple' option in TXT2MTXT does not work in such a way.

 

So, am I missing something or is there a LISP routine that can help?

 

Thanks in advance.

I found something that might work for you over at The Swamp. It is a lisp routine by Ron Perez posted on Nov. 2nd, 2010. I tested it in AutoCAD 2013 and it works but it does have a quirk. If two groups of text are close to each other it might combine them both. Interested?

Well I have already tried the one you edited out of your post and it works pretty great, but no harm in trying this other one you suggest.

 

Many thanks!

I could not get it to work in 2013. Maybe I did something wrong.

 

Here is the one from Ron Perez. At least I got this one to work. Download then rename it by removing the .txt from the end of the file name.

 

T2MT.lsp.txt

It works for me in 2012, but the closeness of the text is an issue.

 

In fact, the original .lsp you got from CADforum still doesnt completely solve my issue, it is handy for some instances. All it allows is for separate texts to convert to separate mtexts.

 

My idea is, for example, group 2 or more texts, convert to mtext, then select a single text, convert to mtext, then group 2 or more texts again, convert to mtext... etc etc., all with a single execution of the command.

 

Thanks once again.

You can't always get what you want. I did my best.
