Inserting a paragraph of text into a drawing.

Gent's.
When I am producing volume reports, i would like to be able to place the text into the drawing.
Years ago you where able to use the MStext tool to paste any amount of text into the drawing but this option appears to have long since been removed.
I was unable to paste the text into the standard Multiline text option when I tried. Is there a way to get any text in that will not require it to be manually typed in?
I would like to be able to Cut and paste it from a simple text file if possible.

You can paste text into the Multiline text box using Ctrl V. If you cant see anything after doing that, highlight the black space in the box (left click drag) and then change the colour to white (there's some sort of bug you can read about in the knowledgebase). It's more than likely your text has always been there but you just couldn't see it.
Oh, and we're not all gents :wink:
