    Default Attach Text To A Line - How To?

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    This is my first day with AutoCAD. I apologize for the google-able question.

    With Visio i am able to draw a line and easily attach text to it. I can't figure out (blindly stumble upon) how to do it with AutoCAD.

    An example : I have speaker symbols with the LV wiring connect to them. I want to add a note to the home run portion of the cable like this :

    Master Bedroom
    #002-025

    I know that i can add text and move it to the line but i would like to have it attached so that the text moves if i move the line.

    Thanks.

    Welcome in the forum!
    Convert the line to block and make the text an attribute. The attribute will move with the block.
    It's nice to be nice, but sometimes is nicer to be evil!
    Tip: Please do not PM or email me with CAD questions - use the forums, you'll get an answer sooner.

    Thanks for the welcome and the help with adding text to a line (that gets converted to a block ).
