TXT2MTXT Command

by Linda Keating
(Santa Clara, CA USA)

In 2008 AutoCAD, on the express menu,there is the ability to change the text to mtext. I am now on 2012 autoCAD and I cannot seem to find the feature. I tried typing txt2mtext to get it to work. But alas, I am at a loss. Was this feature taken out? I use it quite often and I have to keep reverting back to my 2008 when I have a lot of notes to put on a drawing.

I will check back, or you can e-mail me.

Thank you,

Linda

Load Expresstools

Make sure the Express Tools are loaded in 2012. Type "expresstools" at the command prompt and that should load them, then you should be able to find the pull-donw menu:

Express>Text>Convert Text to Mtext

As well, the TXT2MTXT Command should now work too.

Hope this helps.
