Q - question

Automatic label - number of blocks in the specified area of a DWG.

A - answer Using the command COUNT and a dynamic text field, you can easily create an automatic label for the number of occurrences (reference counter) of a specified block in an AutoCAD drawing file.

The procedure is illustrated in the "Battle of Blocks" video. The text label with the number of blocks in the specified area is by default updated on drawing regeneration (i.e. also on print, save, open).
