I attached to images which describe my problem.
I want to have a blank space in my attribute text, for example:
In the documentation, it works with blank spaces, however if I try, it doesnt.
What can I do here?
Thanks for your help!
Unfortunately that does not work for me.
I either get an ()# in front of my desired text with blank spaces, or all letters become capital letters and blank spaces produce an error.
I could not find a way to achieve blank spaces, mixed letters and no ()# in front of it, at the same time.
I write my .net plugin to set the attribute from clipboard.
Another way is to recreate the attribute using "-attdef". When ask for the tag name, just use double quote
Just use Alt+255 for a space character and it will accept it. Also when the attribute generates a "#()", just edit it again to delete the "#()" from your attribute. It will likely make everything all caps when you do it, but it doesn't effect anything. All caps or no caps yields the same results.
Thanks for the tip with Alt+255!
This works fine, using the ATTDEF dialog.
Using project properties, AutoCAD still rejects the space character.
Your comment with all caps is true concering the attribute itself, but the dumb text in front really gets all in capital letters, which is not wanted by us.
I guess I will live with that....
Some might say: Why don't you make the dumb text via an original text field, why must it be in the attribute? I want to achieve, that my attribute is automatically set to the right place, when I change the dumb text in front and has the same textstyle.
When using the button to insert drawing properties or userdefined properties (dont know the english name of that button right now) this works perfect, by the way.
Thanks again for your answers!
