The Lost Single Line MText Editor
*Applies to: AutoCAD R13, 14, 2000, 2000i, 2002, 2004 and 2005*

Most of us are use the dialog box for creating MText, but there are still some of us that look for a simple interface for this command.  Well there is such a dialog box right under our noses, and has been since R13.  It is a single line dialog box with the ability to bring up the full editor if needed.  To do this follow the Command Line Sequence provided below.  The new value that you should enter for the system variable MTEXTED is :lisped.

Command Line:
Command: MTEXTED
New value for MTEXTED, or . for none <"Internal">: :lisped
