Routine vertically aligns text notes in a drawing.

Line Up Text (Tip #2185) from Gordon Reichhardt is a handy tool for vertically aligning text notes in a drawing. After loading the LISP code, type ATXT at the AutoCAD Command prompt to start this macro. It asks you to select text objects on the screen to be aligned. Pick text objects that will share the same X starting point (this function behaves best when working with text that was generated with left alignment). The program automatically employs a filter in the selection process so that you can window a bunch of objects and only the text (and MTEXT) is selected. Once you select the text objects, the program displays a vertical line that moves back and forth as you move the mouse (nice use of GRREAD, Gordon). Pick the point and the text is all aligned.
