How to explode block keep attributes text in CAD? Sometimes you may want to make an attribute block into individual pieces. Generally we will use EXPLODE. But after exploding, you see the attributes lose their values, it shows the attribute tag instead.

The solution is to use BURST instead of EXPLODE; it will preserve the attribute value.

I guess you use old version of AutoCAD. For AutoCAD 2009 or former version, BURST is included in the Express Tool, you might not install the Express tool.
