Text To Attribute App

AutoCAD® Command WCST2ATT

The Text To Attribute App converts a selected Text or MText object to an Attribute Definition object. This is a great tool if you have an existing drawing that you would like to turn in an AutoCAD® Block. Converted Attribute Definitions retain the selected Text or MText object's properties and the selected object's value is, by default, used as the Attribute Definition's Default value; however, this can be changed as required before clicking the OK button.
