Thank You, Thank You,
I wish I had seen your Reply six years ago.
You gave me the lisp I've been needing.
How did I find your lisp?
In "caddude" discussion "Convert multilple text items to mtext WITHOUT combing into 1 mtext",
"Johneng" linked to your reply in "L Russell"s "Converting Text to Mtext".
I'm glad AutoDESK has the AutoCAD Discussion Groups for us to share with each other, eve years later.

I'm interested in your lisp code, thanks for posting it.
I've never used lisp code, so I'm just wondering how it will work.
Will this map my command TXT2MTXT to always make separate MTEXT objects? Ideally for me I would like to have an option every time I run the command; sometimes I want one large piece of MTEXT and sometimes I want them to stay on their own. Is that possible? Could I set up my keyboard shortcuts (pgp file) to have one shortcut to run the command with your lisp and one to run it without? I really don't know what is possible in this area.
Also, there is the obvious question of whether it will work on the newer releases since you posted it nearly four years ago.
Credit where credit is due! Give kudos or accept as solution whenever you can.
Very awesome! Works exactly how I want it to. Now if we could only have Autodesk add this in as an option for converting mtext that way all users could enjoy it without trying to play with lisp.
This sounds like and absolutely awesome lisp file.
I have copied the code into a .lsp file and loaded it through appload.
However when I go to use it it won't work for me.
Any idea why?
I have fixed the problem team.
I had to match the actual name of the lisp file with the ref in the lisp code and then it worked fine.
I called it dt2mt rather than t2m.
