AutoCAD Mtext Formatting bug?
« on: November 13, 2017, 03:29:58 PM »
Can anyone else replicate this?
* Must be drawing specific .. cannot replicate in empty template. Also same behavior in 2016-2018 vanilla AutoCAD.

BricsCAD does not show this bug but does report an _Audit issue related to the linetype of the entity. Maybe fixing that will also solve this bug?

I also get the  {\fArial|b0|i0|c161|p34;1447'}.

You can delete it when you set the text editor to an external editor.

If I edit the text style, it is set to Arial Greek.

Change the font BEFORE edit (tested on A2013).

Try This  :




Code - Auto/Visual Lisp: [Select]
  1. (defun c:a ()
  2.   (setq ss (ssget '((0 . "mtext,dimension,multileader"))))
  3.   (setq n (sslength ss))
  4.   (setq k -1)
  5.   (repeat n
  6.     (setq k (1+ k))
  7.     (setq s (ssname ss k))
  8.     (setq en (entget s))
  9.     (setq typ (strcase (cdr (assoc 0 en)) t))
  10.     (setq ass 1)
  11.     (cond ((= typ "multileader") (setq ass 304)))
  12.     (setq txt1 (cdr (assoc ass en)))
  13.     (setq txt2 "")
  14.     (setq i 1)
  15.     (setq len (strlen txt1))
  16.     (while (<= i len)
  17.       (setq let (substr txt1 i 1))
  18.       (if (= let "\\")
  19.         (progn
  20.           (setq i (1+ i))
  21.           (setq let (substr txt1 i 1))
  22.           (if (or (= let "{") (= let "}") (= let "\\") (= let "P"))
  23.             (setq txt2 (strcat txt2 "\\" let))
  24.             (while (and (/= let ";") (<= i len)) (setq i (1+ i)) (setq let (substr txt1 i 1)))
  25.           )
  26.         )
  27.         (cond ((and (/= let "{") (/= let "}")) (setq txt2 (strcat txt2 let))))
  28.       )
  29.       (setq i (1+ i))
  30.     )
  31.     (cond ((/= txt1 txt2) (setq en (subst (cons ass txt2) (assoc ass en) en)) (entmod en)))
  32.   )
  33.   (princ)
  34. )
