Add sequential numbering to text objects in AutoCAD

Here is a tip for you. TCOUNT is an Express Tools command that not all AutoCAD users know about. Te command adds sequential numbering to text objects. The numbering can appear as a prefix, suffix or replacement text. It can be started from Express Menu>Text>Automatic Text Numbering or using the command TCOUNT. Let's say you have three rows of text like this: This is the first row This is the second row This is the third row By using different options
  • Sort selection set by X, Y, or Select-order
  • Placement of text- Overwrite/Prefix/Suffix/Find&replace
the result using TCOUNT could be like these three samples: 1 This is the first row 2 This is the second row 3 This is the third row This is the first row 5 This is the second row 4 This is the third row 3 5 10 15
