ACAD Question...What's the command for merging one text style into another one? For example; I want to merge the text style 'ISTANDARD' to 'STANDARD' globally in an entire drawing. What is the quickest, fastest way to accomplish this...? After this is done i'll purge the old 'ISTANDARD' text style out of the drawing....TY

Rename if its a new text style not yet created, otherwise quick select the
text with the text style and change it in the property palette.

Load the attached. It will change ANY style to any style you want (if
both are in the dwg.)

Yes that does work but i'm working on a very large facility background with hundreds of text groups..I can't check and verify each individual piece of text. Basically my instructions are to do away with the 'ISTANDARD' text style. my problem is that numerous groups of text are using this style. So i need to convert all those texts styles (ISTANDARD) to the 'STANDARD' text style. I remember using some kind of merge text style command in the past, however i can't remember what it was....?

I want to TY in advance for your time spent working with me....

When i try and open that LISP file using notepad i get a bunch of jibberish headed with the message: "AUTOCAD PROTECTED LISP FILE".

Am I doing something wrong in trying to view/read it?

Then look at the CAD Standards tools.

You DO NOT OPEN THE FILE - you load it, thus . . .
type at the command line the following: (load "chgsty") - all with
parens. THEN, you type chgsty. OR . . . you can go to Tools and use the
Load Application. Just make sure the file is in a folder that autocad
can find first in either case.

None, It's missing a function when I ran it.
