Convert to Linestring "Dumbed down" my Smart text 



I ran the convert to linestring on my site map that I sent out to the field and it "dumbed down" my smart text by converting the leader lines to linestring


A couple requests:

  • Convert to linestring   
    • In the convert to linestring more toggles to turn on and off to prevent accidental conversions of TBC smart data
    • Maybe a list of potential entities that could get converted and a summary of the type of entities that the user has selected prior to running the command. This would act as a good heads up or warning. In the heat of the moment, it is easy to make unintended mistakes
  • A macro to convert selected linestrings to leader lines   
    • Have the user select the linestring that should represent the leader lines and the associated text. The lead point would be whatever the start of the linestring is and then it would attach to the text
    • as a reverse to this scenarios and as a solution to "smarten" up text received in a CAD file that may have lost links


enhancement request


Any other tricks to quickly fix this?
