Hi, Does AutoCAD have a function to copy and increment text? Say I have a piece of text that says Area 1, I want to copy this text a number of times so that I get Area2, Area3, Area4 by just copying ....
TCount, an AutoCAD Express Tool will do that for you. Basically, the procedure is to place the common text (Area) where you want it. Then type TCount and select each text entity in the order that you want them numbered. You can then decide the starting number and increment as well as whether the number will be a prefix or a suffix.
Thanks for the reply...but what I'm hoping to do is to place the word Area1 just once, then copy and increment it multiple times, so when I copy it, it becomes Area2, Area3 and so on...I can't get this to work with tcount
Yup, and so many years after Autocad was born, we still can not draw double curve lines or have a double lines with one continuous and a dashed like highway paint marking. $4,000 program
>> have a double lines with one continuous and a dashed
You are right for arcs combined with double lines. But straight multiple lines with different linetypes work with _MLINE.
MLINE is not a favorite command for me, but for some few cases it does it's work (with limitations, ok).
