Mtext Editor


I saw a question in the CAD Manager's list of WAUN (there's still email based support for AutoCAD!) about the MText editor, so I thought I'd throw a quick post up here about it.

Personally, I haven't used it much since testing the new one (which is really nice, lots of functions, bulleting, etc which didn't used to be there).
Very Valuable Variable!

Okay, so, MTEXTFIXED used to allow you to set the size of the text editor box, but, that doesn't work anymore. Now, with the in-place text editing, things that are small on the screen are nearly impossible to edit.

So, if you want to return to the old MText editor type MTEXTED, then OldEditor.
To set it back to the new one, MTEXTED, then Internal.
I believe there are other ways of doing that, setting other mtext editors external to AutoCAD, but, I haven't used any other methods myself.


Oh, and any FM people, make a special trip up to the Autodesk Discussion Groups and talk about what you don't know. (psst, that's Facilities Management for the uninitiated...)
