Autocad 2012 - change overwritten font in multiple mleaders

Autocad 2012 - change overwritten font in multiple mleaders

(OP)
Hi all,

So I have a bunch of multileaders (50) which have a text style that uses simplex font. However, they have all been overwritten in the "in place mtext editor" to arial font. I'm determined to find a way to change them back to simplex all at once, but can't find anything. If this isn't possible, a way I could change each individual one in approx. 1 click would also be useful. You can't change one and then match properties with the others, but that would be an example of the second type of solution. I've run into this problem before, and any help other than "don't overwrite in the in place editor" and "change each one in the in place editor individually" would be greatly appreciated. But if you all think these are the only available options, I can change each one individually. I just feel like there has got to be a better way. I've attached a file with the multileaders, and am using Autocad 2012.

Thanks so much in advance,
labeattie

Try the "strip mtext" lisp routine, looks like should do the trick.
After doing that, you could globally change text style using usual procedures.

Thank you! That is exactly what I was looking for. I find it a little crazy that that capability is built into AutiCAD in the first place. Nevertheless, that worked excellently!

Wow. Sorry for the typing. I meant I find it a little crazy that that capability is not built into AutoCAD in the first place. Thanks!
