    Default Enter attribute values by selecting text object

    Hi,

    I searched everywhere but couldn't find a usefull command or LISP routine.
    The title says it all basicly... I'm changing plain autocad drawings to intelligent drawings with (dynamic) blocks. To speed up this process i'm looking for a way to enter attribute values by selecting text objects in the drawing. Otherwise a have to retype all text thats already present in the drawing, and i'm too lazy for that

    hope anyone can help me out

    Thanks...

    I use copy & paste but it really shouldn't be too hard to automate it - have you tried the programming forums?

    Have you tried something like this: http://www.cadtutor.net/forum/showth...tribute-Values
