How to create attributes in AutoCAD

When creating Attributes in AutoCAD you need to first create the layout or outline of the area you want the attribute to be in. For example, I have created a simple circle in which I want to put an attribute and I will walk you through the steps.

Once you have the area created you will then need to create the attributes, the command to create the attributes is the “Insert” tab under the “Block Definitions” category and it is called “Define Attributes”.

The next step is to create attribute to suit your drawing. You will need to enter in the Tag, Prompt and Default. Once you have done this you can adjust the Text settings to suit the size of the area you want the attribute to be in.

Once you select “Ok” you will then be prompted to specify the Attribute in the Model Space. The next step is to create a block of both the circle and its attribute. Once the block is created the attribute will then become editable. Once the block has been created a data table will appear. As there is only one attribute created you will only receive one box which you can edit but if you have multiple attributes then you will have a list to match.
