Q - question

How to move text entities to the Z-elevation by their text value.

A - answer You have text labels (entities) like "284.4", "731.11" on given locations in your drawing and you want to individually move (displace) these texts to Z coordinates corresponding to their text values (Z=284.4, etc.).

For this you can use the free TEXT2ELEV utility available on www.cadstudio.cz/download.

In case of block attributes you can use e.g. Excellink.
