Auto numbering a group of objects

I work making electrical projects and it is frequent for me to have a lot of lamps to number, sometimes hundreds.

Does anybody know how to number a group of objects automaticaly?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

 

>> It can be circles, squares, pictures and whatever.

If you work with symbols I would suggest that you work with blocks, then these blocks have attributes and last but not least you can then search for tools that gives you support when filling numbers (IDs) into that attribtues.

One circle, two diagonal lines and a text besides that does not make a structured version of a lamp in a drawing.


ATTOUT and ATTIN + Excel is one option (needs ExpressTools to be installed), but there are also some tools out there if you search the www.

I didn´t attach the file because it is a generic doubt. I just want to put numbers besides each object when i have a lot of them.

It can be circles, squares, pictures and whatever.

There is a free tool in the Exchange Apps store you can access/install and use from inside AutoCAD that will most likely do what you seek. Look it up, it's called INCREMENT. Much quicker than other suggstions so far.
