I'd like to have MTEXT work like single-line text in some ways. Single line rotation stays where you set it until you change it or end the session. Multi-line does not. Even if you use the -MTEXT option, the rotation goes back to zero after the command terminates. Also, with the -MTEXT option, the on-screen editor disappears in favor of the command line while you type your text. This is annoying.
Anybody know if there's a workaround or some kind of variable that can be set to hold the rotation angle for as long as it's needed?
