Adding a text box to the user library

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to make a text box (just text) a library item?

 

for example:

 

This design uses 
OBC Part 11
Egress Option A

 

Imagine the attribute has a box around the text so that it is a stamp.  I would like to add the box to the drawing and then change the option.

Block it  then add to Library.  If the text contains a macro then you just edit the macro.

Hi Joe, Strange but I can't block text.  I have to add some other element to it.  What am I doing wrong?

if I have two text boxes I can block them together, but for some reason, CA will not block one text object, at least mine won't.  Have I set some preference incorrectly?

Joe!

You are the man!!!   Yes, that works perfectly.  All this time I have been drawing a polyline rectange around the text to add it to the library.  Now I realize it wasn't the box that let me add the text it was the marque select that was allowing it!  Sometimes I miss the most obvious things.   

 

Thanks
