Centit.lsp moves text to the center of a circle, handy for change notes or a callout reference.

First up was a cute little trick from W. Kirk Crawford called Centit that moves text to the center of a circle (Center Text In Circle; Tip #1974). This type of notation is commonly used for change notes or a callout reference to another place in the drawing or sheet set. To use Centit,draw the text and circle reasonably close to what is desired, then load and run Centit. Pick a point on the text (and inside the circle). Centit then hunts down the text and circle objects to obtain the center point of the circle. The text location then changes so that it s centered in the circle.That s a timesaver in the neatness category!
