The GILE_INCR command opens the Increment dialog.

In its left part, the dialog provides common controls for all tools.

  • The 'Value Type' frame is used to specify the incrementable value type (numeric, alphabetic, alphanumeric, hexadecimal or roman numerals).

  • The 'Parameters' frame provides text boxes to set the initial value, the increment value and some optional settings: a separator character, a prefix, a suffix.

  • The OK button launches an action according to the selected tab. The action repeats incrementing the value until the user do not Esc, Enter or Space to get out of control.

In its right part, the dialog provides four tabs to specify the settings of each different actions.

  • The 'Attribute' tab is used to increment an attribute value at each block insertion. The user selects the block to insert and the attribute to increment, he also can set some block properties (global scale and rotation).

  • The 'Text' tab is used to create a text object which value is incremented at each insertion. The user can set some text properties (text style, justification, height and rotation).

  • The 'Selection' tab is used to edit existing Text, Mtext or Attribute objects by prefixing, suffixing or replacing them with an incremented value. The user chooses one or more entity type and selects the action to perform.

  • The 'Auto' tab allows to automatically increment a selection set of texts, mtexts or block attributes according to ascending or descending X and Y coordinates.

    s zwarts | June 04, 2020

    Amazing tool, which really reduces time on my drawings. 

    One request: can you make it compatible with dimensions?

    Carla Creek | February 13, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    quick to install. quick to learn to use. It will increment specifcia attributes within blocks already in the drawing, or drop new blocks in as you go, or just use plain text. Awesome! I love it!

  • Its working great! but
    Mikbal Kirmizikaya | January 14, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    But however I believe im having a strange problem. Everytime I open Autocad. Your plugins keeps adding one more icon into the ribbon. as of now, I have 5 increment plugin shows in my Add-In Ribbon. it keeps increasing each time I restart autocad. :) but app itself working flawlessly! Thank you!

  • excellent routine
    Stephen Watson | January 09, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This is what I have been looking for. Works as advertized and is easy to use and quite versatile. O e thing I would like to see added is the ability to do alpha numeric lables that increment the character after a selectable number of digits. for example

    A1 A2 etc then when you reach say A48 the A changes to B and the number goes back to 1. Should be able to choose the count before the change in leters.

    This would be perfect for my needs

  • nice

  • Great Utility!
    Owen Iverson | November 11, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Only thing that would be really nice is to "pad" the numbers with leading 0s.

    "Pad to 2 digits" would create 01, 02, 03, ... 10.

    "Pad to 3 digits" would create 001, 002, 003 ... 010, 011 etc


    Gilles Chanteau (Publisher) | November 12, 2019

    You already can do it. Just enter: 01 or 001 as "Start value".

  • Dieu est la !
    Nicolas Miralles | June 13, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Cet outil est fantastique et permet vraiment une très grande souplesse dans l'incrémentation d'éléments de tout type !

    Merci Gilles !

  • Excellent!
    Patrick Gorman ~ACP~ | April 03, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I have been using this for many years and it is by far one of the best Add-ins I have.

    It seems 2020 has broken it though. (email sent)

    Gilles Chanteau (Publisher) | April 05, 2019

    You will have to install the 2020 compatible version which will be published soon.

  • Efficace.
    Robert Serhal | February 06, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    C'est simple et efficace.
