JTB Text Bubble
Digitally signed app
Inserts Text Bubbles at end of lines, arcs, polylines, splines, and leaders or at any other location of your choice. Renumber the text bubbles quickly as needed.
These are the 3 commands help you get flying with Text Bubbles:
1. TBB command:
Specify the diameter of the Bubble's circle. Pick objects (lines, arcs, polylines, splines, and leaders) to insert Text Bubbles at endpoints. Text Bubbles will be aligned nicely to the object directions. While picking objects, you can change the text value to be inserted. Values enter in sequence as 1, 2, 3, or A, B, C or a, b, c would be automatically switched to next value in the found sequence. Pick on empty space would insert Text Bubble at that pick point. Pick on a Text Bubble block would replace it with the new value. Pick on Text or MText object would convert that Text or MText to Text Bubble. Note that TBB supports only a single line and short text. Otherwise, it won't fit the bubble circle.
2. TBBCV command:
Select multiple Text and MText to convert to Text Bubbles.
3. TBBRE command (Text Bubble renumber):
Renumber mark attributes of Text Bubbles and/or other blocks. 4 options are:
1. Find and replace;
2. Adjust attribute;
3. Highlight bubbles of the specified mark for editing via Properties Panel.
4. Turn on or off auto grouping
Example of TBBRE command with new start number is 3:
+ Auto grouping is on: 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 5, 5, 5 will be 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5
+ Auto grouping is off: 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 5, 5, 5 will be 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
