Help Creating Block with Attribute

Help Creating Block with Attribute

Help Creating Block with Attribute


I am a somewhat new DraftSight user looking for some assistance in creating a block.

Here is an example of what I want to create:

-X00 -X06
-X01 -X07
-X02 -X08
-X03 -X09
-X04 -X10
-X05 -X11

Where the value of X is controlled with an attribute that the user can enter.

If I enter 1 for the attribute value it looks like this:

-100 -106
-101 -107
-102 -108
-103 -109
-104 -110
-105 -111

Any help would be appreciated!
