How can I export a Shapefile's Attribute to Text Layer in CAD Using FME.

For example I have a Shapefile of Parcels and it contains a ParcelID field. Now I would like to display that field attributes as CAD Text Annotaion layer. Thanks

Use the Labeller or LabelPointReplacer transformer. Both of those will create annotation. Then use the DWGStyler (assuming your CAD output is DWG) to assign a style, size, rotation, font, etc to the annotation.
