question for ya all out there.. so, in a drawing, i have several text strings, 's', that i would like to change to a known block... is this able to be done? there are over 3000 's' in the drawing, hoping to change them all to the same block. let me know if this can be done. thanks
I'm not sure - maybe there is even a simple AutoCAD command for this.
Are you able to select/filter all text strings you want to convert into blocks?
If so - here is the way I would do it (not necessarily the easiest one):
- export all your textstrings ("s") : command _mapexport, choose ESRI SHP as target file format, export as "text".
- import the file again (command: mapimport) - you can import the text objects (basically points with text attribute) as blocks
To import the text as block:
- in Import dialog box, click on <acad_point> in "Point" column
- click on small button appearing on the right
-in dialog box "how to process points?" choose "As blocks" and select the block you want your text converted into
