    With Mathematics there is the possibility of perfect rigour, so why settle for less?

    One line of text, doesn't even need to be text, i can "write" it with lines/polylines.

    But it must be visible, on screen. On defpoints, so others can plot normally.

    Should be undeletable.

    I thought we were trying to lock an object?

    CADTutor himself suggested the use of a 'read-only' xref to a similar question. That assumes the person that the drawing is sent to does not know how to reset the read-only attribute. Do most people know how to do that these days? I do but then I grew up with DOS.

    If it was invisibility you were looking for:

    Code:
    (defun c:invis (/ ent)
      (vl-load-com)
      (if (setq ent (car (entsel "\nSelect Object: ")))
        (vla-put-Visible
          (vlax-ename->vla-object ent) :vlax-false))
      (princ))
    
    (defun c:vis (/ ss)
      (vl-load-com)
      (if (setq ss (ssget "_X"))
        (mapcar
          (function
            (lambda (x)
              (vla-put-visible
                (vlax-ename->vla-object x) :vlax-true)))
          (mapcar 'cadr (ssnamex ss))))
      (princ))
    *couldn't resist*

    But as for undeletable.... hmm, thats a bit trickier.

    Obviously a locked layer is the simple answer, but that assumes they don't know how to unlock a layer.. which is pretty obvious.

    Perhaps a persistent object reactor could do the trick, but I've never done anything like that, so we are stabbing in the dark a bit here...

    Stabbing in the dark. That sounds like a job for Super Mac! I bet you could figure it out.

    How about something like "Educational stamp" but in visible and non plot-able version?

    No problem, this is good to know, also.

    Undeletable, uneditable, unmovable. Maybe, locked, is a better way of saying it.
