Attribute Tools

Attribute tags within AutoCAD blocks are an extremely powerful entity type and can be extremely difficult to work with. They look like normal text but they have a wealth of configuration and application issues that you need to understand. In this section we will look at the new Attribute tools provided with AutoCAD 2002 and how to use them.
