Cara Nash Snyder sent us this useful AutoCAD tip for fixing paragraph spacing in pasted text:
Have you ever pasted formatted text into AutoCAD MText from another application (such as Microsoft Word) and found that the spacing is off? You try to adjust the line spacing, but that doesn’t fix it. If so, you can easily fix it by activating the MText editor, highlighting the text, and right-clicking. In the right-click menu, select Paragraph.
Next, check Paragraph Spacing, and set the values to 0. This will remove the embedded formatting from the other application.
Notes from Cadalyst tip reviewer R.K. McSwain: Pasting text from other applications can be frustrating sometimes because unwanted formatting can come along with it. You might want to keep certain properties such as font and color, but remove other formatting. This is a good tip for removing unwanted paragraph spacing that may be applied to pasted text.
