Q - question

How to add thousands separators in AutoCAD numbers?

A - answer Use the LISP application by CAD Studio - srxText (see www.cadstudio.cz/download) to add digit-triplets separators to existing drawing texts/figures.

The search/replace expression for thousands separator (",") can be e.g.:

-?\([0-9]+\)\([0-9][0-9][0-9]\)
\1,\2
You may need to repeat this for millions etc. (srxText can be scripted). It will change:
1234 -> 1,234
-1234.5 -> -1,234.5

Load the VLX file with APPLOAD and type SRXTEXT. See Readme for other examples of complex text replacements.
