Edit Text Query



In acad 2006, when I try to edit single line text, the edit window is exactly the size of the text that I am trying to edit. In acad 2004, a large, readable window opened up over the drawing. Is there a setting I can change in 2006? Thanx, Expo3Dave.
edit text

If I am correct you are describing two different types of text.

The Single Line of text is DTEXT (Dynamic Text) it only edits a single line of text.

The other box that you are decribing is MTEXT (or Multi-Line Text).

If you explode the MTEXT you end up with the DTEXT. You can reverse this if you Use a special Lisp routine to bring multiple lines of DTEXT back into MTEXT. Hope this helps.
