TPAS University: Fixing data in AutoCAD drawings using the ATTOUT and ATTIN commands

In this installment of TPAS University, Kelly demonstrates how to easily correct individual annotations or large batches of data using AutoCAD’s ATTOUT and ATTIN commands.

The ATTOUT command exports a selected set of data to a tab-delimited file, which is easily edited in Excel. The data is then imported back into the AutoCAD drawing using the ATTIN command.

This is a great tool for making batch changes to data, for example changing the priority designation for an entire group of conditions. It also works well for correcting smaller issues, such as typographical errors.
