Get more out of DDEDIT when editting Attributes and Text
*Applies to: AutoCAD 2005*

Have you ever found yourself confused as to whether you are editing Text or Attributes in AutoCAD at times.  Often I have seen users start up DDEDIT thinking they are about to edit a piece of Text and not be able to edit it.  Why, because it is an attribute in a block.  This behavior has been changed in AutoCAD 2005.  You can using DDEDIT to edit Attributes that are in or out of a block, Text, Mtext, Leaders or Dimensions.  This allows you to focus on making changes to your design by taking the guess work out of which command you need to use to edit the annotation.
