Q - question

How to draw frame around a text entity?

A - answer You can draw frames around existing text objects in your drawing (textbox).

Make sure you have the latest Express Tools installed. Use the TCIRCLE command or add the following macro to your toolbar:

^C^C_SELECT;_AUTO;\_TCIRCLE;_P;;$M=$(getvar,DIMGAP);_R;_V;
You can also use the TOLERANCE command (your text in datum identifier, frame resizes automatically).
