Q - question

How to explode block attributes keeping their text?

A - answer If you explode (EXPLODE) a block with atttributes, the attribute values change back to their AttDef names (tags). Usually, you need to keep their original values - i.e. the filled-in text of the attribute.

In these cases you can use the BURST command from Express Tools. It explodes a block retaining the readable attribute values.
