Using Rtext in a title block that is xreffed into paper space of sheet
drawings A-1, A-2, etc. when i open the sheets, or even the xref , rtext is
a box with an x thru it. i must retype rtext to activate the text. i have
tried a dozen times to add rtext to my start-up suite, to no avail. any
ideas how i can:
1-get rtext to start with any drawing i open so that my xref with the date
on it updates dynamically without my starting the command rtext manually.
thanks

Put this in a lisp file that loads with each drawing.

(cond
((not (findfile "rtext.arx")) (princ "\nRtext.arx not found."))
((not (member "rtext.arx" (arx)))
(arxload "rtext.arx")
)
)
