Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Export Attributes, part of AutoCAD: Express Tools Workflow.
- [Instructor] So we're staying in our 02_Blocks.dwg file…and what we're going to have a look at now on the blocks panel,…on the express tools tab is the export attributes command.…Now, I've gone back to the orignal block.…You can see the whole block there with the attributes.…And what I'm going to do is export out these attributes here…so you've got the desk number D999…and the desk owner John Smith.…So I go over to the blocks panel…and click on export attributes.…Now it will prompt me to save this particular file…that I'm exporting the attributes into into a known folder.…
So I can see that it's a txt file,…a regular Windows text file…and it's called 02_Blocks the name of the drawing .txt.…Now I'm just going to make sure it's in a known location.…I'm going to pop this into my blocks folder…in the drawings folder there.…And you can see I've already got one there…that I've saved recently so I'm going to overwrite that…and click on save and replace it by saying yes.…I then select the attributes I want to put…
