Text editing in AutoCAD
Thread poster: Maricica W.
I have a text box in ACAD which I can\'t get into. \"Explode\" doesn\'t work, as it is not a Block Reference.
Double-clicking the text or \"find and replace\" don\'t work either.
Does anyone have an idea of how to edit the text?
Thank you so much

What is the source text? How does it look like? Can you select it? If yes, try Modify - Inplace Xref and Block Edit - Edit Reference. After this you will have to select the items once again and then click the right button. The text will highlight, and all the rest will appear in dark, and you will be able to edit it.
This is in case it is a block reference. If not, try to select an item and right-click it, select Properties. You can find a field named Text Overwrite which would contain the text for editing.
If the text contains units of measurements, you will have to change the style (suffix and prefix).
I need more info to help you out.
