Display an Objects Name

Recommended Posts

I have a drawing which is full of symbols which have all got individual names. I am trying to display this name next to the object, so that when it is printed out our clients can refer to each item.

Is this possible?

I'm trying to picture the circumstance in which you would want to do this.  Typically, I report symbol data to a worksheet, so it is all in one convenient list / report and doesn't clutter up the drawing.  For instance:  A plumbing schedule.  Can you elaborate on what your intended use is?

Best uses data tag. @Wes Gardner posted a custom tag on this forum which will show the symbol name. Scroll to Jan 3.
