Tracking / Renaming Text Objects

Hi,

 

At my company we use text objects in our designs for quite a bit, including reference/design numbers and notes.  I'm trying to figure out a way to automate updating these text objects when needed using a popup box (for example, there are probably five different places on the drawing where "DR-24592" shows up, and I want to use a pop up box to change that number using a script).

 

I've noticed that there is a collection of text objects that are automatically numbered randomly.  I was wondering if there was a way to rename the text object (Text.Name) to something of my own choosing?  Or does anyone have any other ideas on how to put text onto a drawing in a way that can be explicitly tracked (i.e. some way of giving a name to something that would be preserved when you export and import an ASCII file)?

 

Thanks,

Jens
