Inserting attributed blocks and entering attribute values

In this lesson you will insert furniture block and room tags into vacant offices. As you do so, you will be prompted to enter attribute values on the command line. Entering these values fulfills the purpose of attributes, which is to store this non graphical information. These values represent the so-called intelligence you are building into the drawing. In other words, not only do you have geometric representations of furniture, but you will also have relevant furniture data stored as well, recording the manufacturer, model number and price. Before we insert furniture blocks, let's set the furniture layer current. Do so by opening the layer drop down and clicking on the word furniture. Then use the Insert tool on the Block panel, and select the Desk Block. Make sure Specify On Screen is selected here for Insertion Point, but deselected for Scale and Rotation, because we'll use the default scale and angle values that are set in the dialog box.
