I need a very simple way of inserting Text Parallel to a Line, but simply selecting an existing line to set the "Angle" of the Text
Can any one assist here?

Thnaks for those options.
The LIsp option looks the best to me.
I'll investigate that path.
Many thanks for the suggestion.
Several options to choose from.
1. Type your mtext in. Start rotate, select mtext object, for base point select one endpoint of line and then the other.
2. Type UCS at the command prompt and hit enter, then type in OB - hit enter, select the line you want the mtext to be parallel to. After the icon adjusts type in PLAN and type in your mtext. When done, type in UCS, hit enter, type W, hit enter and type PLAN and hit enter and your back where you started
3. Search the lisp forum to see if someone wrote a program to rotate Mtext, or post a request there to see if someone their could write one for you.
Sorry forgot to add. There is a rotation option while creating mtext. You can use the endponts of the linetype as reference. I assumed your mtext objects were all ready created.
there are lisp routines that not only set the text to the same angle has the line, but the set the spacing between the text and the line. That way your drawings look cleaner. Lisp is the way to go. Search Lee Mac in google.
