Sequential Text Editing

I have been away from cad for roughly seven years, but after a 5 yr stint in the military and 2 yrs of school I have found myself not only at the same firm I was at in 2006, but the same job title, and even same desk. When I left we were using AutoCAD 2003.


I don't know if it is still a command, but in 2003 there was a command I used that allowed me to edit text sequentially. type the command and select the DTEXT you wanted to edit. The order in which the DTEXT was selected was the order in which it would be edited. That may seem a bit prehistoric and outdated to some, individually changing each DTEXT line and not using a command like FIND, but it comes in really handy when editing something like a panelboard schedule.


Does anyone know this command, or if it doesn't existing, know a lisp routine that can accomplish this.
