Is there any way (yet) to Middle Center justify RText?

Not sure what version you're using but have you tried FIELDS in MTEXT yet? IMHO, it beats the snot out of RTEXT.

Haven't tried it. I'll look into it. Just got off of ADT2002 and onto 2005.

I use RTEXT for many years..and didn't find the way to change the text justification..
but with the field now....seem to be better.

No diesel code.

The problem is that some client have AutoCAd 2000i.   :lol:

Same as RTEXT, you have to have an AutoCAD that will use it for it to work.  2000i(or was it 2002) didn't ship with express tolls, it cost extra and without express tools, no RTEXT.

I had the same question when on '04.  No luck.
Abandoned RTEXT for fields when we switched to '06. :) much nicer.

Sorry to resurrect an antique thread, but it seemed appropriate.
Have there been any changes to RTEXT since this thread started? Still no way to change justification?
Unfortunately, I'm not aware of any way to use custom drawing properties in Diesel within a field (GETPROP works only within RTEXT). I know you can reference custom dwg props in a field directly, but I know of no way to do any math with that approach.
SO -
Still no what to adjust RTEXT justification?
No way to use custom dwg props within diesel in fields (to use with math functions)?

Thanks

Still no way to justify Rtext that I know of (I highly doubt they've even touched Rtext in 20+ years).

I think you know that you can use Diesel in a field but I don't think I totally understand your need. Do you have a specific example?

I'm using it create a sheet index for a large project that will be updatable based on some custom dwg props.
This is an example of the RTEXT I am using now. It works fine, I just wish I could justify MC.

Code: [Select]
$(getprop,%sheet_Prefix)$(+,$(getprop, %sheet_num_offset),1)

Specifically, the GETPROP diesel function does not work with diesel in fields, only RTEXT.  Makes no sense to me. :uglystupid2:

Ah. Sorry. That sucks because that sounds like a big time saver.

The RTEXT route works fine, I just wish it behaved more like MTEXT... Oh well.
Just makes no sense to me that Diesel in fields doesn't leverage everything Diesel can do. Dumb.
