    Lightbulb Column format for MTEXT

    Sometimes you have a very wide but very short space in which you want to insert notes or other text. Currently, using MTEXT, you can frame the space in which you want to enter text, but the text gets entered the full width of the space. It would be convenient to be able to divide such a space into "newspaper" columns, so that, for example, in a space 24" wide but 4" high, you could have six 4"-wide columns. The only way to do that now is to create six separate MTEXT frames; but then the text is not continuous from one frame to the next.

    That would have come in handy a couple of times.

    Gets my vote.

    This is a feature that Architectural Desktop 2004 had in making Door Schedules wrapping.

    It would be nice to have wrapping tables and mtext of a similar nature in AutoCAD.

    The table tool in 2005 is on the way to doing what you want but the text won't be continuous from one cell to the next...
