Hi Andrew,

I am guessing this is an external library, but you maybe able to push it upstream.

Certain Autocad DWG files with embeded blocks fail to display text that was associated with them. For example see grid ref D.03 in the attached autocad drawing, the circles are terminals and should have nos in them.

Have tried exploding them in qcad etc, but nothing.


This task depends upon

These texts inside those blocks are "block attributes" and not supported by QCAD at this point.
Changed bug report to feature request.
