Hello guys, I am trying to increase performance of my work by making some dynamic blocks, unfortunately I have faced a wall :/ I want to make a block with an option to make ONE of it's attribute printable/unprintable (By unprintable I mean for it to be like on defpoints layer), without "hiding" the rest of the block. I tried the "easy way" by changing the layer of the block (in blockeditor everything except THE attribute on specific layer, THE ATTRIBUTE - "0") but then when I switched in model layer to defpoints it doesn't print this block at all. I tried also adding a visibility state, but it looks like it doesn't work well when there are multiple entities of the same attribute (in other visibility states) in one block definition. Is there a way of changing a layer of element for example in lookup parameter? Or maybe somebody can come up with other solution? Regards rusi55
I don't know if this requires a lisp or a script solution.. I regularly work on multi-tabbed drawings. I often encounter situations where on a tab, the extents are much smaller than the title block. The title block extends off/beyond the existing extents (defined by the hidden/dashed line.) Is that the printable area or the extents? What I typically do is: zoom extents, Go to plot, change something such as: unpick the fit to paper check box, pick it again (so that something changes) Pick Apply to layout button then hit Cancel. The extents of the drawing then automatically change (or are updated) to the correct extents of the title block. (My dashed line now surrounds my entire title block.) Regen or Regenall doesn't do it. Zooming extents alone doesn't fix it either. Having to do those steps on all 30 tabs of a drawing is a PITA. Any suggestions or solutions that any of you are aware of? Is there another way of accomplishing this? I would SO APPRECIATE a workable solution...
