Tip #1860 [TXTCALC.LSP]
This command, Txtcalc, lets you perform addition and subtraction with AutoCAD text and dimension entities.The command sequence is similar to that of AutoCAD s Area command. When you type in the command, it shows the current total as 0.0 and then asks you to choose the mode (Add or Subtract). Both options prompt you to Select objects. You can select multiple objects at once. The program performs the selected arithmetic operation on the selected entities and shows the new current total. You can continue with the desired option, or type X to show the grand total and exit the program. This program is very useful, especially with dimension objects. It takes care of both default and overridden dimension text.
