Q - question

Free text counter AutoLISP utility.

A - answer If you need to quickly renumber a series of text entities in AutoCAD, you can use the free AutoLISP utility "CADstudio IncText" - see

Load the VLX file (APPLOAD) and start the IncText command. Select the texts to renumber (window selection selects them by the history of creation). IncText replaces the original texts with automatically incremented numbers. You can specify the initial number, the increment (integer or decimal), decimal precision, and alternatively add prefix or suffix to the texts.

See the IncText counter in action:

IncText can be a replacement of an older Express Tool TCOUNT.

If you want to use decimal numbers with decimal comma (instead of decimal point) as the delimiter, set the inctext:UseDC variable before starting IncText:

(setq inctext:UseDC T)
