I have encounter some text exploding problem. As shown in attachment, I would like to know if there any possible way I can explode the text into polyline or single line and maintain it within the position and style?

Just use the explode command to explode the mirrored arc text.  It worked with AutoCAD 2010.  See attached.

Hi, what i require is the text can be direct explode without changes its orientation. If i use the normal explode, i will sort of reverse direction.Any idea to do it or type a mirror arc text directly?

A crude way of achieving that is  plot thru DXB

Wow, that's the end result i need. Mind i ask what do you mean by plot with DBX? Can give a little more details. Thanks.

First add the DXB plot

 

Options
Plot and Publish
Add or Configure Plotters
Add-A-Plotter Wizard
Next
Next
Autocad DXB File

 

When you plot you will DXB file.pc3 or whatever you named it

Try it out to have a feel for it

 

To insert the DXB format

DXBIN

ok,just now give it a try and it's good.By the way, not sure if i have done wrongly or not, cause when i insert the dbx file, the explode text is not in scale 1:1, though when plotting time, i make it to be plot in scale 1:1.is it i need to rescale it back to original size everytime? Please advise.

 

Additonally, is there way we can direct type a mirror text as shown in my previous attachment.? Previously i use to block the text and mirror the block.

I guess you could plot to scale, didnt really gave it much thought

 

as for a newly created ARCTEXT you can use a Text Style with backwards option, that might work

 

EDIT:

I tried 1:1 on your drawing, it works fine, I used ISO A0, no need to scale down/up, make sure you uncheck FIT TO SCALE
