Lines up a second set of Mtext with a previously selected Mtext object.

In-Line Mtext (Tip #2077), sent in by Leland Leahy, lines up a second set of Mtext with a previously selected Mtext object. It lines up the Mtext neatly, just the sort of thing needed for manipulating multiple Mtext objects comprising a report or bill of materials. Load the LISP program file and then type FMT at the AutoCAD Command line to activate the function. Individually select two Mtext objects. The first one selected is the control object. The second one will line up underneath. Leland used entity lists to manipulate the data for the Mtext, making this tip an elegant example of that style of programming.
