    Default Annotative Circle or Dot

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hey guys,
    I'm looking for any method to have an annotative circle or dot in a dynamic block.

    I'm marking street lights along the highway with a circle and am throwing an attribute text with its name plate on the side in Defpoints.

    Is there a way to make the circular or dot shape annotative to remain 0.100 inches diameter no matter the zoom?

    Thanks

    Not independently from your dynblock's annotative abilities, no: you will need to include sizes to manually adjust (PS use a DONUT object if you want a "dot" that sizes up and down).

    Yup, once an object is inside of a block it's just another part of the block. It's the block that is annotative itself.
    The S197 gen Ford Mustang, and the F-4 Phantom both prove the same theory. "With enough power applied, a school bus will fly."

    If you draw a circle 0.1" in diameter, it will always be that size, no matter the zoom level.

    Perhaps you mean that you want this circle to always be the same size in screen pixels, no matter the zoom level?
    Like this?
