Multiline text being converted into separate multiline texts

I've recently noticed that my multiline text boxes in old drawings have been splitting themselves into multiple multiline text boxes.  They aren't exploding into single line text because it won't let me use the convert command to turn them into multiline because they are already multiline.

 

I know the dimassoc command can be set to a certain value to cause all dimensions to explode but is there some kind of command that could have change itself and is causing this problem?

 

Hopefully that explanation made sense...

 

Thanks for the help!

mtext boxes do not just split them selves.   They don't explode into multiple mtext boxes either.   They explode to dtext.

 

I've never seen what you're seeing.   I can just tell you that is not typical behavior.

Ok so even if they explode themselves to single line text blocks then there still isn't a command that controls that?

 

I was hoping it was some kind of setting that auto-exploded multiline text.  Don't know why you'd ever want that but, was hoping that existed so I could fix my issue.

I got this lisp routine on this discussion board some time ago, it converts multiple dtext objects to single mtext objects.

 

Hope that helps
