If you know how to load and use LISP, attached is a freeware I found some time back (just unzip it first): if you only want to use built-in tools, see reply above.

Many thanks guys for the help

 

  • I couldn’t find any command in the Express>>text that does what I’m looking for,
  • The command “text2mtext” has no window selection

Core Text2Mtext do that, there is a reason

You click on the order that they will be in the mtext.

 

Some lisp combine them by the order texts were created and some are by justification.

Yes, search , search... they are everywhere.

Use the lisp I posted, it does what you want :smileyhappy: if you don't know how to do that then ask.

 

In your screenshot of the Express Tools, the built-in is the one called CONVERT TO MTEXT and it does not do what you want as has already been pointed out. Spend a little more time reading, exploring and searching and less time marking up screenshots repeatedly for no reason and asking the same exact question over and over again.
