AutoCAD LT 2012 Multiline Attribute - mtext grips

I've posted about this before and I've come back to it, and this time with an example drawing attached.

 

When I select a block that contains a multiline attribute my AutoCAD does not display the corner grips of the attribute if its location is "locked" in the block.  Is there a setting I can change to show grips in 2012?  Apparently a co-worker of mine that uses 2011 has grips when selecting the block.

 

If I unlock the location I have grips (not the same ones I am used to seeing from mtext though) but I do not want the attribute location unlocked

 

I was understanding that the multiline attribute was simply an attribute containing an mtext.  Am I mistaken?

 

Thank you!

Yes my colleague was accessing the same block, however I was incorrect, he was never able to access the grips of the mtext attribute without using the attribute editor.  It was a mistake on his part explaining things to me.

 

So it appears that AutoCAD LT is not written to allow what it is that I am talking about . . . at least not in its "un-customized" default state when it is installed.  Does anyone have a way to make work this work though?  A macro, or customizing a diesel expression somewhere?  I am open to learning how to do that kind of thing

 

Thank you!
