Frame Text
For a different twist on a popular theme of placing a frame around text objects, Frame Text (Tip #2037) from Alex Borodulin uses a simple LISP routine to insert a block containing a complex AEC dimension object. The result is a frame around some MTEXT. Copy the DWG file provided to a folder that AutoCAD can locate, and then load the LSP file. Type FX at the command line. It asks for a placement point and an orientation angle. The next thing is the MTEXT entry for the annotation. Cleverly, the AutoCAD commands are stored in a drawing as a block. After insertion, the block is exploded and automatically called up for edit. Thanks, Alex.
