Specifying a Multiline Text Editor

Your text editor may offer some formatting options that cannot be changed in the Multiline Text Editor. For best results, use the same text editor to edit text that you used when you created it.

To specify a text editor

  1. From the Tools menu, choose Options.
  2. In the Options dialog box, choose the Files tab.
  3. Click the plus sign next to Text Editor, Dictionary, and Font File Names.
  4. Click the plus sign next to Text Editor Application. Then double-click Internal.
  5. If you’ve previously changed the MTEXTED system variable to (.) for none, then the arrow is displayed under the Text Editor Application, but Internal is not displayed. Click the arrow and choose Browse to modify the text editor.

  6. In the Select a File dialog box, enter the name of the executable file for the third-party text editor you want to use to create multiline text.
  7. Choose OK to exit each dialog box and apply changes.

Command line OPTIONS
System variables MTEXTED specifies the name of a third-party text editor to use to create multiline text. To use the AutoCAD internal text editor, specify Internal.
