With Visio i can easily add text to a line like the example below. How can i do this with AutoCAD?
At another forum the suggestion was to "Convert the line to block and make the text an attribute. The attribute will move with the block". I have been trying to figure out how to do this since last night with no luck.
Is there an easier way to accomplish the task? If not can someone walk me thru (or point me to ) the steps to make the line a block and make the text an attribute?
Go to the Insert menu and choose Field...
Choose the Comments field. Attach the field to your line. Select the field and replace the default characters with your text.
Invoke the Properties command and change the justification of the field to Middle Center. Turn the Background Mask on and use the drawing background color as your fill. Use the Insert osnap and move the field to the location of your choice on the line.
Use constrain command: GcCoincident
See attached sample. Attribute block is another approach but from looking at your example you probably don't need it.
