Apply the properties of the existing text entity to the newly created entities.

A2T is a routine that allows you to add a new line of text to an existing text object in AutoCAD. At first glance, it may seem a bit trival, but this routine from Alan J. Thompson uses the properties of the existing text entity — such as style, rotation, obliquing angle, and justification — and applies them to the newly created text entities. Start by loading the LISP file, then type in the command A2T. Select an existing text object and start typing in the next string. Alan has also included a slightly modified version (command name A2TS) that will allow you to add a blank line before adding the new line of text.
