'loAll!
One of you guys must know of a way to change the default space between each line of dtext.  I asked this a long time ago on Cadalog, but couldn't find the post.
I don't think I got a positive answer back then, but I know it was pre-2004.  Daron, did they make that option available in the new version?  I don't know why they wouldn't.  I like all of my text to be ON SNAP!!!  It would be nice to be able to set it ourselves!
Thanks a lot! ;)

Thanks Hendie,
I found that as well...Should have mentioned that in my original post.
I don't know why they wouldn't have added that functionality to dtext at the same time.  They obviously knew it was an issue or they wouldn't have enabled that with Mtext.
:roll:

Use the TEXT command to create line text for short entries that do not require multiple fonts, such as labels.
Use MTEXT to create long, complex, multiline entries

I think they are pushing mtext full force and trying to do away with normal text. If you've seen 2004's mtext editor, it's cut-throat. Tab tab's, Enter enters. Have a look at the ADT forum for more mtext abilities. Look at the end of the longest thread. Yes, I'm too lazy to link you to it. Sorry I can't help much further. I happen to like mtext and avoid regular text as much as possible. Man, when are attref's going to take on mtext capability?
