Select an existing text entity to display the total of a series of text numbers in the drawing.

Mosad Elewa has taken an old Cadalyst tip (No. 703 from October 1991) and modified it to perform a task that he uses all the time. The original tip allowed you to select a series of text numbers in the drawing and would return the total of these numbers on the Command line. Mosad’s new version allows you to select an existing text entity in the drawing to display the total. Load the LISP file and start the command by entering Adnum at the Command prompt. Select the text entities to add, then select the single entity to display the result. Thanks for taking this tip to the next level, Mosad.
