Hi,

 

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

 

Good Luck,

Rob
