Creating Multiline Text in a Text Editor

If you use a third-party text editor for multiline text, you define general properties on the command line before you enter the text. AutoCAD then opens the text editor for entering text and uses format codes to format individual words and characters. When you close the text editor, AutoCAD inserts the text within the specified width limit.

The following procedure describes how to create multiline text in a third-party text editor using the default properties and formats. For information about applying formats, see “Formatting Multiline Text in a Text Editor.”
