Q - question

Text with automatic label of the layer it lies in.

A - answer With AutoCAD's dynamic text fields, you can create a text that automatically shows the level in which it lies, its size, slant, color, or other property , directly in the drawing. To update the value, you need to regenerate the drawing.

For an example, see the block in the DWG file Block 22415 - SelfAwareText.
