With the Text Bubble Plus you can insert text bubbles to lines, curves, or draw leaders with it, or quickly make a schedule from text bubbles and/or other blocks. Incrementing of numbers or letters is done automatically. Works with AutoCAD, BricsCAD and GstarCAD. ZWCAD upon request. 

These “Plus” commands in Text Bubble Plus will help you fly through your work even faster.

Text Bubble now can be chosen to be the original one, or any other block of any shape, or MText.

1.   TBB command will insert and align Text Bubbles at end points of lines, arcs, polylines, splines and leaders.  While command is running, you can change the text value of the next bubble. Values enter in sequence as 1, 2, 3 or A, B, C or a, b, c will be automatically switched to next value in found sequence.

2.   TBBLE command will draw leaders with Text Bubble blocks at end. Text will be increasing similar to TBB command.

More “Plus Features” are:

·        TBB works with all nested lines and curves inside blocks or Xrefs.

·        While TBB or TBBLE is running, type U to undo the previous action

·        Easily manage Text Bubbles (and/or other similar annotative blocks) with - TBBCV (convert), - TBBRE (renumber), - TBBSE (setting) and - TBBSCH (schedule) commands.

Note: Text Bubble block will be scaled to current dimension text or by specified text height from TBBSE setting command.

Use TBBCV command to convert numbers in a MTEXT list by adding a circle, triangle, square, hexagon or other block around the numbers. It is common standard that the keynote list matches the symbol used for the leader.

FAQ: When you start TBB, if starter text is 1, then the next will be 2, 3, 4. if starter is a, or A, next will be b, c, d, or B, C, D.
But you break the sequence by entering a custom text, here is 1, then the next will be just your custom text 1. If you want to trigger a new sequence, you have to enter 2, then TBB will know 3, 4, 5 will be the next.
Similar to a, b, c or a1, a2, a3. That mean, once you break the sequence, you have to enter 2 continuous item of to create a new sequence.
