MTEXT crashing Lisp!!

70 Views, 3 Replies

Hello Lisp experts!

I have a lisp function that calls the MTEXT command and crashes because the prompts for height, just, rotation, style, etc. are not executing in the command. When I type MTEXT or -MTEXT at the command line, I receive this after picking the first corner of the mtext box;

Specify opposite corner or [////]:

....instead of this...

Specify opposite corner or [Height / Justify / Rotation / Style / Width ] : Specify a point or enter an option

Any help will be deeply appreciated.

Sincerely,
Tod

Tod,

Sounds like you are using the pause symbol in your lisp, correct? If so,
check into the TextEval setvar.

I have had this problem several times. I could never nail down exactly what
was causing the problem.
To troubleshoot the problem, I would set my preferences to "command invoke"
(compatibility tab in r14) to eliminate loading any arx programs.
Things would start working, but the problem would eventually rear its ugly
head again.

Wish I could help more...
