How to choose the attribute or field data from a list?
When using the “title block”, attributes and fields to better control the information that belongs to the drawing, then it worth to have a feature that allows selecting this information from a LIST.
For example, if we need to specify “location” of the project, then it is better to have sort of list from which we can select the location of the project the same we do it in the Excel (as shown in the screenshot below).
Is there such feature in the AutoCAD? To choose the information from a list?
Thank you for the help,
The “location” is just an example!
What I wanted to say is whether the AutoCAD has the feature that allows us to choose some values from a list.
For example, if the “location” values are limited to Ramallah, Jericho and Hebron, then how could we choose these values from a drop down menu as shown in the screenshot of the Excel above?
For your specific example: Create a dynamic block with 3 visibility states, set each of your location visible in one state and invisible in the others. They should just be text or mtext and not an attribute. Now you have a block with a dropdown that only allow a list of 3 locations to pick from.
Not worth you time in my opinion.
many thanks guys for the help.
