CADstudio DwgText

Win32 and 64, English

CAD Studio
The DwgText plugin allows you to export/import texts and selected entity properties between your DWG drawing and an Excel or text file.

General Usage Instructions

According to the options preset in the Settings dialog, the DwgTextExport command exports selected entity properties to a Microsoft Excel sheet, an Excel file or a text file. A new row (line, record) will be created for each selected Autodesk® AutoCAD® entity. Any entity is identified in the exported file by its entity handle (ID number) and its drawing name - these will be used for future imports.

There are some differences between the export to Excel and to a text file. Each exported Excel row will contain AutoCAD entity identification in the first cell’s comment, while a text file has it as a row value (column). You can export entity handles and drawing names to Excel too, but the values are not important for the import functionality.

The TRIAL version is limited to 15 days and 5 objects in each export.
