Number

When you need to place numbers or codes to your drawing the 'Number' command can help you out. You can place numbers, letters or roman numbers in ascending or descending order. There are 6 shape you can choose to be placed around the numbers and you can add a prefix and suffix. You can place numbers by picking points in the drawing. Or you can select entities on which the number will be placed. If the entities are in a straight row you can also decide to place numbers with an array routine. When you are placing the numbers you can add a legend in the same time.
