How do I set a frame and a label in AutoCAD?

Is there any automatic function or I just start drawing rectangles and adding text? Are there any margins and sizes I should respect?

    typical text once printed should be 1/8″ – 1/4″ height
    so the text size in the file is different depending on relation to print scale and whether you are doing the text in model or layout.
    You can create a rectangle, put the desired text into that frame then create a block which when place will have attributes to fill in as it’s being placed.

    it depends on the version some versions have standards within them. like the mechanical version and the architectual versions. also you might find standards online by searching google. for your own preferance i would just create them how you want or need and save them as a block and import them as a block as you need them.
