Find and select annotative objects; get annotation scales.

Raymond Rizkallah shares with us two routines he wrote to find and select annotative objects in a drawing.

"FIND-ANNO.LSP is a utility to filter annotative objects. The following functions are available:
[FNDA] FUNCTION: Find and select specific or all annotative objects
[GETA] FUNCTION: Get annotation scales for a specific object."

Notes from Cadalyst Tip Patrol: Finding and selecting annotative objects can be difficult in a file with many text objects in it; these two routines will help. Entering GETA on the command line will tell you the annotative scale of an object, if there is one. FNDA will find annotative objects of certain scale factors, or all scale factors. It then stores those objects in the Previous Selected mode, which allows you to select Previous to get ahold of these objects.
