Any body got any clues as to how I can convert all the text styles within a drawing to the same text style? for example i have a number of different text style within a drawing and I want them all to be Romans, is there a convert all command? cheers Skipper

PROPERTIES command for the most part does that.

 

If you have Mtext with a font override those will need to be stripped of their formatting first, there are lisps floating around these forums to do that, try a search.

How about selecting all of the TEXT and MTEXT, then assigning to the desired Style via the Properties Palette. Or you could use CHT to change the TEXT and MTEXT from original Style to that desired.  Either way, Purge the now unused Styles. Rick

I'm after a command that will convert text that is not visable or text that is embedded within other peaoples blocks or xrefs which have been "bound in" etc.

 

Please see the attached drawing; I want to convert all the text to RomanS

 

Cheers

Instead of changing all texts / mtexts styles to one style, I would recommend go through every text style definition and change them to match the text stylel your prefer.

I suppose the most suitable answer would be to make a "CAD Standards" file and then run the "standards" comand.

 

Thanks all for your time and comments
