Anybody have a solution that works?
For people like me who dont want to explode a block in order to get the text objects, it is amazing at how few options there are.
I have tried the tag2text.lsp and it doesn't work. I have tried the express tool txt2mtxt and that doesn't work.
I have searched for a good lisp routines and cant find any. Exploding blocks is not an option
All of the lisps taht claim to do this, assume that the attributes are allready exploded from a block. This seems pointless.
Is there a routine that allows you to select a block with attributes and then places the tag values as text without exploding the block?
I found the following that makes mtext out of block attributes.
The only problem is that it asks the user to specify the text height. It would be better for my needs, if it were to just take the attribuite text info and use that to create the text as the same as the atts.
You can set ATTDISP to ON, which will allow you to see any invisible attributes.
Or, you could WBLOCK all blocks, then run BURST (expresstool) on that file, then re-import the resulting text objects.
