Stretch text strings horizontally or vertically.

Isak Mishaeli has submitted a routine that enables you to stretch a text string horizontally or vertically in AutoCAD. It does this by manipulating the width factor and/or the text height of one or more text entities. You can graphically select the new size without having to know its measurement. If you select more than one text string, you can either change them all to the same length or cycle through each one for individual control. Start by loading the LISP file, then type in CTL to change text length(s), or CTH to change text height. This routine was supplied in FAS format, which will load and run just like a LSP file, except that the source code is hidden.
