Secret mtext options: Remove formatting, combine paragraphs, change case

The Mtext Editor has three options that many people miss. In the Mtext window, select the text you’ve entered and right- click inside the text area. Choose one of the options:

  • Change Case to change the text to all uppercase or all lowercase.
  • Choose Remove Formatting to return all text to Txt font and remove bold, italic and other formatting.
  • Choose Combine Paragraphs to do just that.

    Hi,
    You can also press enter while entering text to go to the next line…. [tic]
    None of this is secret. Please label posts correctly.
    Thanks

    Yes great tool but this has to be done element by element. Is there any tool to do multiple paragraphs at once? Searches bring up the StripMText lisp routine, but that does not remove character width over rides?

    Anyone have a modern method that works?

  • A tool within a whole suit of excellent tools called Toolpac by http://www.Dotsoft.com does anything you wish or leaves untouched anything you do not want reformatted in selected, whether one or ALL, MTEXT strings.
    Toolpac is WELL WORTH the cost and is constantly being updated as of 2016.
