Replacing Non-Annotative blocks with Annotative blocks
SpotWesMom posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceHello! I have found every answer for every AutoCAD question that I have had in the past 9 months at this site and I love it!! Best. cad website. Ever. However, I finally have found something that someone else hasn't posted about yet (I think). My company is in the process of updating the entire block library to be annotative or dynamic (depending on the usage) and it's been wonderful for new projects. The problem comes in when we have to update an existing dwg. When we try to "blockreplace" the new annotative tags for the old non-annotative tags. These tags have attributes, but we have literally not changed anything about the blocks except the "annotativedwg" property within the root block file. When we run blockreplace, the old blocks disappear completely! they're not at a teeny scale or a gigantic scale, they're not on an "off" or "frozen" layer, they just fully go away even if you say "don't purge the old block that is being replaced". I usually don't have a problem "doing my job" and just going through and replacing them individually on the smaller sized projects, but most of our projects have upwards of 700 - 1000 tags per dwg. Slightly tedious as you can imagine, especially since I am addicted to finding newer faster better ways to draw. Any help is greatly appreciated! ~Amanda
How to make an existing block annotative
Benjo posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceHi, I created an dynamic block few weeks ago and forgot to make it annotative. I try the ddchprop command, switch annotative to yes but it automatically immediately switch back to no. Could anyone help me with this please?
