  1. Hi All, I hope i have put this in the right section of the forum. Introduction to my Queries: I am working on a 2D housing layout, which has multiple houses, roads, paths and trees, ect. For the record I use Blocks for the houses and within each block contains details such as House Name, Engineering Details (Rain water Pipe, Soil Vent pipe), Hatch Colour, roof line and entrance indication. The problem: Quite often I will have to mirror and rotate the houses to give variation for the elevations and general design of the layout. Now the problem I have, is when using the mirror cmd. The mirror cmd also mirrors the text which mean I have the choice of 2 things: A- explode the house block and flip the text back. B- make an additional mirrored blocks for each orientation. the problem with solution B is i have to then insert a new block each time, which makes the Job very long winded and lengthy especially if i have say 1000 houses on the scheme. is there a way to have a block which allows you to replace it on the whim? Like a right click change to opposite block. or is there a way to make the text to always keep it orientation? despite being mirrored Thanks in advance Jason

    block requirements

    Hi all, I need to accomplish the following: Place a block labelled AB-101 on layout 1 the same block labelled A-101 on layout 2 and the same block labelled B-101 on layout 3. Any suggestions for doing this more efficiently than creating three separate layers, and three separate copies of the block for each layout? Thanks much, Donna
  3. Hi, 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?
  4. Hi all, I am trying to extract data from a block for eg. area of a polyline (that had been made as a block) so that I can export it as an excel schedule. I have been unsuccessful so far. Whenever the data extraction window asked for what kind of information to be extracted, area is not one of them. Another question is, I have information that had been worked out in excel and I want to attach this to the blocks that i have made in CAD. I have import the schedule into CAD and this comes in as a table. How do I then link the cells in the table to the block annotation so that when the excel schedule changes, the block annotation changes too? Thank you!!! Would really appreciate some help! Elfie:)
