A More Robust MultiLine Text Tool

Wish List Item:  A more robust Multiline Text Tool (Multi Text)


I don't know if they have fixed this in version-20 or the up-coming version-21 yet, but in my version-19.2-Deluxe/Bld.54.2, the MultiLine Text Tool, including when editing existing MultiLine Text, is as crippled as it is in my version-11.2-Pro.  One of the things I was looking forward to-- in upgrading to version-19-- was that they would have improved on this Tool.

My hunch is that they only developed this Tool good enough so as to have interoperability with AutoCAD-- sort of as I believe is the case with the MultiLeader Tool; that may be an incorrect assumption.

I'd have to show you a screen-capture video to convey to you just how hampered this Tool is in my version-19DL; but believe me... it struggles--  I have only maybe 30% control over the Tool.

Thank you, Alvin

(In architectural construction documents-- which I mostly do-- there can be an abundant amount of verbiage.  It would be nice, for some of that documentation, not to have to bring in an OLE Object word-document)

Alvin Sorry for the lengthy non-response.  I am interested in knowing more about your use case(s) and lack of control regarding the MText functionality.   Can you please provide more details?

I'll make a mental-note of your request Dave.  And when I come across an incident in my drafting in which the Multiline Text Tool really causes me a lot of frustration, I'll try to take the time to make a Video and send it to you.

"They" may have already improved it in version 20 and/or 21.  I know it really, really, sucked in version-11.  Sucks much less in version-19.2-Deluxe;bld. 54.2 (but still not anywhere near what I would term responsive or robust).  So maybe "they" have kept improving on it?
