Text in ACAD? Please HELP!

Is it possible and what's the best way of having vectorized text from typing
in ACAD.
Is it doable in ACAD itself or do I have to import it in ACAD or something?
Thanx!!!

Hiya
If you have Express Tools, there's a command that allows you to explode the text. If you don't, and I suppose that is the case, here's a routine taken from
formatting link

;Tip1558: XMT.LSP Explode Mtext (C)1999, Len Yip (defun C:XMT () ;EXPLODE ALL MTEXT LEN YIP JULY/96 (setq ZZA (ssget "x" '((0 . "MTEXT")))) (setq ZZN (sslength ZZA)) (setq INDEX 0) (repeat ZZN (setq BL (entget (ssname ZZA INDEX))) (setq INDEX (1+ INDEX)) (setq ZZC (cdr (assoc 10 BL))) (command "EXPLODE" ZZA)))
There is usually a little cleaning up to do after the explosion, with shrapnel and all leaving unwanted lines and such. But it is very useful when you need the outline of text as polylines and not real text.

Thanx a lot! I figured out the Explode command, but then i found a better way - Copy - Paste from CorelDraw! ;)
Cheers!
