How to convert DTexts to MTexts (individually)?

A - answer The TXT2MTXT command can be used to convert multiple texts to a single Mtext. But if you need to just convert the type of multiple drawing objects from Text to MText - without combining them - you can use the following simple AutoLISP code.

Save it to txt1mtxt.lsp, load it with APPLOAD and start the TXT1MTXT command:

; CADstudio TXT1MTXT - text to mtext (individual)
(defun c:txt1mtxt (/ ss lst x)
  (setvar "CMDECHO" 0)
  (command "_undo" "_begin")
  (setq ss (ssget '((0 . "TEXT"))))
  (setq lst (vl-remove-if 'listp (mapcar 'cadr (ssnamex ss))))
  (mapcar '(lambda (x) (command "txt2mtxt" x "")) lst)
  (command "_undo" "_end")
  (setvar "CMDECHO" 1)
