Break a large mtext entity into smaller chunks of mtext.

Your first thought when you see this routine might be, "Why would I need this?" After all, you can explode mtext with the regular Explode command in AutoCAD, right? What makes this routine from Clint Cogswell different is that it actually breaks apart a large mtext entity into smaller chunks of mtext, not single lines of text. If you import a large section of text, and you want to be able to move various sections of it around, this is the routine for you. Load the LISP file, then type in the command XM. Select an mtext entity, and it will be broken into smaller mtext blocks based on the paragraphs in the original block of mtext. The LISP code author has included plenty of comments in the code also. Thanks, Clinton.
