AcEdJig with MTEXT

Hey all,

Just wondering, if there is a way to use a jig to dynamically stretch MTEXT and show the contents reformatting.

Even AutoCAD MTEXT objects do not do this when grip-edited. The box just stretches and after placed, the contents re-format.

I'm looking to stretch some new MTEXT being placed in the drawing via ARX.

 

Example, pick top left corner, default-sized text box appears with text preview, steetch bottom right corner as mouse moves to place final shape, but contents are word-wrapping as the mouse moves.

Is it doable?

Thanks,

I'm sure it's doable, but it may not be very useable on average hardware. Try it and let us know whether the results are satisfactory.

Performance was my real concern as well.
