Hi all Ive just discovered how to set objects onto the reference layer in inventor through the part/assembly browser. I have also managed to get into the Styles Manager to edit the linetype reference items are dropped in as. I've even managed to sort of out the nice little cropping function it threw in for a laugh.......... Is there a way to control the transparency of reference objects? It doesnt matter what linetype it is set too, it always becomes 'transparent' once set to reference. I can see where it useful, but in other cases not so much. Any help much appreciated!! R.
I have done a fair amount of scouring the internet for a solution, to no avail, hopefully someone here can help me. For example, I have a hosted electrical receptacle device with a loaded annotation (2D symbol for printed plan purposes). What I would like to do is add a horizontal annotation offset that allows me to move the symbol left OR right based upon a single properties window field. As it sits right now, I have a reference line to one side of my device center line that is tied to a dimension parameter. Unfortunately Revit does not allow negative lengths, which means moving the annotation in the opposite direction is not possible. I have even tried (without expecting it to work) locking my annotation to two different reference lines (a right and a left parameter), but this produces no change at all. I believe this is because it can't be locked to two parameters, with different values, at the same time. One of the threads I read (http://www.revitcity.com/forums.php?action=viewthread&thread_id=15532) makes mention of this functionality, but does not go into detail on how to make this happen. Given that this thread was quite old, I did not ask this question on that forum yet, but I might. Any help you can give is much appreciated. FYI.. I am using Revit MEP 2011.
