I have received a large text in text format. I have converted the lines in MTEXT. Now, I am trying make one Mtext. I was trying to copy paste on the first Mtext and the paste is not working. MY intention is to make one MTEXT file and then make columns to fit in my paper space. How do I add different MTEXT to one MTEXT file? I have attached the file of reference.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Did you see the file I posted? I did what you want and it worked fine: but you have to do one MTEXT at a time, open the source, select all then CTRL+C, then open the destination, scroll down, select the location and CTRL+V.
The method you describe is from a fantasy, not real-life AutoCAD or Windows, unless you are trying to rely on some third party clipboard manager tool (which is failing if you actually have one).
I was not using ctrl-C and Ctrl-V. I was trying to use copy from EDIT and /paste from the ACAD window. I am sorry I missed your corrected file. An Architect friend of mine helped to get the files in order. Thanks for your help..
If you want all the text in one MTEXT block, get all the text/mtext in order and explode it all to text.
Then just select all the text and convert it to MTEXT using the txt2mtxt command (part of the Express Tools suite).
You may have to go through and add line breaks, carriage returns and so on to get it to a reasonable state.
