Utility lets you supply an optional text addition that is appended to all the existing text before the closing parenthesis is added.

Add Parentheses to Existing Text (Tip #2147) from Jim Cunningham is a power text editor. After loading the LSP into AutoCAD, type the command Jparenth to activate. Select the text to be edited (you can use a window because the selection is filtered for text objects only) and press Enter. At this point, you can supply an optional text addition that is appended to all the existing text before the closing parenthesis is added. Just press Enter with no entry if you don't want to add anything to the text except for the parentheses. Nice job, this is a great example for those wanting to build power text editor tools and is very useful.
