Q - question

FieldLink to display links between fields and objects.

A - answer The free AutoCAD utility CADstudio FieldLink displays temporary lines (arrows) between dynamic text fields and the objects, which properties are used in the fields.

So you can easily represent (visualize) links and relations (connections, dependecies) between text fields (texts, attributes, table cells) and their dependent drawing objects (entities) - e.g. between a boundary polyline and its acreage label. The lines also identify all fields depending on objects. The temporary lines are automatically erased on redraw or zoom operations. Alternatively, you can make them a permanent drawing geometry.

You can download the the FieldLink application from Download. Load it with APPLOAD and start the FIELDLINK command.
