Nice LEE! 

My only minor comment/suggestion/tweak would be to allow it to use polar mode instead of ortho mode?
Very far from a deal breaker.

Thanks.
I + XI = X is true ...  ... if you change your perspective.

I no longer CAD or Model, I just hang out here for camaraderie

I never really use the Polar mode too much, but I shall investigate and see what can be done  :wink:

Thanks for the comments guys  :-)

Just adding finishing touches to the routine... the user can now alter the Justification of the Text that is being aligned, by pressing 'J'.

Code in first post updated to Version 1.5

One final update - Version 1.6 will allow the user to select a Text Object to use as an alignment point...  8-)

Dynamic Text Alignment TXALIGN from 2009:



'New' TEXTALIGN command in AutoCAD 2015:



Not sure whether to be flattered or annoyed by the imitation...  :|

Be amused you did it first, did it better, and did it in LISP. Sh!tcan any other responses, they don't benefit you in any way.

Thanks guys.

@MP, there was the initial frustration that the idea behind my program had been taken and touted as a new command, but you are right - its pointless for me to dwell on it, and so I should simply take comfort in the knowledge that my peers can see through the imitation.

Cheers,

Lee

I hear you Lee. Generally speaking, more bad than good tends to happen when one takes direct exception and makes a huge fuss over someone copying ideas, code or style. I've seen many people react in a spectrum of ways, and even though they're fully entitled to feelings of outrage for plagiarism et al a big portion of the animosity and general ill will tends to taint and stick to the victim. I am not saying it's fair. Hardly. The solution is not to let bastards skate free, no, but objective community members with no vested interest should call foul when they see it. Unfortunately it does not happen near the frequency it should. But that could improve, and quickly, because one action begets another. In your case the best approach would be to merely identify the blatant idea lift sans any attitude and then let others supply the criticism. Tongues will wag given the slightest in.

tl;dr: Peer support, how the good [expletive du jour] does it really work?

PS: Do I need to add "this is just my opinion"? Squirrel.

Lee, I have tried in 2013 but:
Comando: TXALIGN

Error: funzione errata: ACET-SYS-SHIFT-DOWN

;;  Notes:-                                                                      ;;
;;  ---------                                                                    ;;
;;  Shift Functionality requires the user to have Express Tools installed.       ;;

I do not have ET... but I did not used Shift Functionality...
Thanks for all.
