Leaders and Block Data

Morning -

 

I am trying to create a leader that reads the block "name" and then places it into circle, or square at the end of a leader.

I see it in the "other" programs but I have plain ole Autocad.

 

Should be simple enought except my brain is locked in the clouds and im spinning around in circles.

Which may not be a bad thing, except NASCAR hasnt  started yet

Can somebody point me general direction on how to get this accomplished

 

thanks

You can add an object field and put a rectangle and leader to it.  In order to have the field, a leader, and an enclosing object in AutoCAD, you would need to create a custom command.

 

AutoCAD Architecture (and other verticals) has this tagging feature built-in.
