How to create Attributes in AutoCAD

When creating Attributes in AutoCAD you need to first create the layout or outline of the area you want the attribute to be in. For Example, in the below screenshot I have created a simple circle in which I want to put an attribute.

Once you have the area created you will then need to create the attributes, the command to create the attributes is the “Insert” tab under the “Block Definitions” category and it is called “Define Attributes” (See the below image).

The next step is to create attribute to suit your drawing. You will need to enter in the Tag, Prompt and Default. Once you have done this you can adjust the Text settings to suit the size of the area you want the attribute to be in. Please see below for an example.

Once you select “Ok” you will then be prompted to specify the Attribute in the Model Space. The next step is to create a block of both the circle and its attribute. Once the block is created the attribute will then become editable. The image below shows the table which you will get once the block has been created. As there is only one attribute created you will only receive one box which you can edit but if you have multiple attributes then the list below will match.
