OK, it appears as though you want 2-1/8" vertical spacing between the mtext objects.

I was thinking about a prompt for spacing, "Auto" "Fixed" "None"
Auto would be the formula I am using now.
Fixed would be a User entered distance.
None would be to use the existing vertical spacing.

Would that resolve the issue?

Here is another version. I think the Spacing option is working correctly.
The routine always starts in the Auto Mode.
There is Help screen.
The Horizontal is not operational.

Hi CAB

hope you don't mind me resurrecting this old post?
I use your text align group (in particular AT command) a lot.
I have a small problem.
The attached dwg, will hopefully clarify things.
The text is all centre justified, after running 'AT' the justified text moves slightly off.

Thanks for the input.

Enter this at the command line
Code: [Select]
(setq atdebut t)Then run you test again.
You will see that the "Text Box" used to create the alignment is correct.
The problem is that the "Center Justification" for the word SURVEY does not agree exactly with the
text box created. Because my routine uses the Text Box & not the alignment point there can be
small variations.

Ah I see.

I entered (setq atdebut t) and nothing different to before happened (no text box).
Searching the Text Align Group CAB013.LSP with notepad didn't show up any atdebut variable?

Everything is fine,can live with the slight variation.
Very useful routine, so thanks a lot!

See attached lisp with debug code.

Note that Tim Willey has a routine that uses the alignment point. I'll see it I can find it here.

Thanks Tim.
Your lu.lsp lines them up perfectly.
CAB what I really liked about yours is that it fixed the line spacing at the same time.
So i'lll stick with your routine and maybe run the lu.lsp after.

Cheers

CAB,
Great work, is very useful for me.
But does not support horizontal alignment?

Check out this routine for stacking dtext:
