Text to Multiline text (mtext; paragraph text).

Postby B. K. Lemons » Thu Nov 02, 2006 2:11 pm

Is there a command or tool for converting an in-place existing one-line string of text to multiline text?

For example:

change this --
"Deed of record in Volume 223, Page 697 OPRSACT"

to this --
"Deed of record in
Volume 223, Page 697 OPRSACT"

I know that you can copy the existing single-line text and paste it in a new multiline text paragraph, then delete the single-line and move the multiline to its place. But that's not what I'm describing. In interested in being able to simply convert the single-line text object, where it is in place, to a multiline text object.

I do not know of an option to do what you describe, except as you have mentioned manually.

Hi:
There is a free utility lisp at Daves cogo to accomplish that. Just download it and load it in mscad2005 then run it.
Go to http://www.cogosoftware.com/ and look under free utilities.

Re: cogosoftware Tx2mtx.lsp noted in Vincent's Nov3/06 post;
Which folder should it go into?
C:\Program Files\MicroSurvey\MSCAD2005 (mine has only 1 lisp file- incad.lsp)
or C:\Program Files\Microsurvey\MSCAD2005\mscad (where most of the lisp files are on my system)?
Or does it matter?
Thx

It does not matter - You can load a LISP routine from anywhere on the computer.
