I have MAP3d 2014 drawings with object data attached. I also need to be able to see the data as text. In map 3d it is a straightforward exercise. I go to task pane>Data>add drawing layer... I select the layer I want data to display and I select the object properties, change the TextLabel into the required field and I have readable on the screen text... However this text does not behave like text at all.... If I edit it, it disappears or reverts beck to the original text. When I open in normal CAD of course it is not readable...
How can I convert this MAP3D data label text into an AutoCad, editable text for everyone to see and edit....
Please help... Since copy past does nothing...
I will appreciate you help since I am battling this for far too long.
There's a couple of ways to do it. One is after you do the query save the map to dwg format. _mapexportcurrentmaptodwg command
Another method is to create map annotation blocks, start with _mapanntemplate then use _mapanninsert to insert those annoblocks.
Third attach the map to a new map and create a alterproperty query to create text.
The order I listed are the easy to difficult IMHO for new users.
Here's another technique:
I also found out that after adding the text through the Task Pane, if I quick select the text and select Express>Mofify>Flatten this created a 2D version of them that can be moved, edited and seen in normal CAD as well.
Thank you for all the great replies
