    Default Fields = RText??

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    From what I've read the last couple of days Fields have pretty much replaced RText, am I right? Since we can have DIESEL expressions in Fields, they should be the same right?

    Can someone explain why then a specific Diesel expression, namely

    Code:
    $(xrefs,12,,)
    works fine in an Rtext and I get the names of all XRefs in th e drawing. But the same just gives me this

    Code:
    $(XREFS)??
    when I put it in a Field?

    this thread on the AUGI forums does a fair job of explaining why, and the best course of action:
