Known Issues

Use 2D Wireframe visual style with PasteSText and PasteMText when text style is a TrueType font.

Table text can not be picked when font is a TrueType font such as Arial in WireFrame visual style. This is a known Autodesk® AutoCAD® limitation. There are three solutions: Use the PasteMtext option and overwrite the table cell which will have the same outcome as modifying an existing cell annotation; Temporarily change the visual style to ‘Realistic’; Temporarily change the text style to an AutoCAD font (*.shx) such as RomanC. Then simply change the font back afterwards.
