Q - question

Automatic point description label.

A - answer For simple labelling of point coordinates you can use the dynamic block PtLabel with automatic labels displaying current X-Y coordinates (block insertion point). If you move the block, the X/Y coordinates are updated automatically.

The PtLabel block uses AutoCAD 2007 text fields.

You can find PtLabel for download or i-Drop dragging in the CAD blocks catalog.
