At the moment I am working on a long section for work i want to change the width factor of some text so it will fit in the datum? I am using MTEXT in cad. Can anyone help??

If you have rows of chainages or levels, you really should be using single line text. That way you can use a lisp routine (CHTEXT.LSP) to change the width factor of all selected text.

Say the base text has a width factor of 1, with CHTEXTyou can change (along with a lot of other things) the width factor to 0.8 or whatever to suit.
