situation: mtext block that's a few letters underlined, a carriage return, and a few numbers.
mtext is mid left justified, text inside of mtext is center justified.


i'd like to replace 12 with 24 however, find and replace "12" with "24" results in


no matter the syntax a semicolon is added to the beginning of the string. so... find and replace ";" with "" however that results with all of the text now being left justified.

throughout that the mtext justification doesn't change.

is there a fix for this mess?
