    Question Labelling Points/nodes

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    If I Insert A Point In Autocad, It Has An X,y,z Coordinate.

    Is It Possible To Label This Point So It Can Be Exported With The X,y,z And Label Information Into Another Program Ie Excel.

    Thanks

    If you use the LIST command you can copy the coordinates from the Text Window and paste into excel

    Question Labelling Points

    The Problem Is I Need To Label A Point.

    I Can Get The Point Coordinates Into Excel Using A Lisp Routine I Have No Problem But I Need Each Set Of Coordinates Labeling. Are There Any Lisp Routines To Label A Point Or A Set Of Points.

    If I Select An End Point Of A Line And Insert A Point I Would Like An Option To Label That Point. Does That Make Sense?

    Thanks

    If instead of a point you use a Block with an attribute, and for each point (block) insert include a label for the attribute value, you can export the information using "attext" or similar.

    Question Points

    Is It Possible Though To Insert A Block That Automatically Inserts The Coordinates Of That Point Into The Block Only For Me To Lable That Block.

    Then I Want To Use Eattext Command To Export This Info.

    Thanks

    You should be able to extract the block's insert point coordinates without them being attributes.
    See http://www.brianmorse.com/ASCII%20Po...m%20blocks.php for (I think) a similar approach.

    You could make a custom block with various attributes, insert it using a custom routine (lisp or vba) and have x & y values automatically entered as attributes.

    What sort of label are you trying to put on each point? will all the labels be the same? Are the points on different layers relating to what they represent? Is this a survey?
