  1. This sounded like a simple question, but I can't find a simple answer. Maybe I'm just looking in the wrong places. We're reorganizing our detail library (again). Windows has a tag system that works for photos and Office docs, but it doesn't work for drawings. Instead of reinventing the wheel, I'd like to piggyback on these tags so that we can find details easily. So far all I've found are utilities that add more layers of complexity. There's the "propulate" command in AutoCAD, but it only works within the software. I need something that works for everyone, even non-drafters. So here's my question. Is there a simple way to implement Windows tags for drawings? By "simple" I mean on the level of toggling a Registry setting, not installing and learning new software.
  2. I've been trying to find existing lisp routines to do the following for a while now (off and on). While I have found some that will change values of Attributes or the text width for every piece of text in a drawing, that is not what I need done. I need a lisp routine that will be manually modified with the current Attribute TAG and Block name based on client titleblock. It can't require manual selection (user input) as this will be used in a script to batch run the lisp routine. To kind of summarize, I would like the ability to specify a block name and attribute tag name (in the specified block) and be able to set the text width factor in the drawing to account for longer filenames per client requests. This is only for the 1 attribute in all drawings. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Here is an example: Titleblock has: Attribute: File name TAG: DRAWINGNO Value: Linked to actual filename with a field Current text width factor is .8 and it needs to be .7 to fit within the titleblock space.
  3. Hello, I'm trying to make blocks with attributes and i watched video on youtube to do so .But when I insert the same block I need to name the tags twice. I don't know how it happens and it bugs me. Please help! A second question is that when I load the block in another dwg file, the base point isn't the same as it was on the existing file. how does this happen and how can i reset the point? and please use simple words because I'm from the Netherlands and I only know basic English:( thank you very much, Pakowano

    how to increase no. of similar threads?

    I have got a keen interest to read the similar threads which helps out with issue on question. It only lists to maximum of 5 threads (I think or at least till now I haven't seen more than 5. Is it possible to change the settings to get more than 5 or all threads with relevant tags?
  5. Hi All, I have recently started using MEP 2011 and I have found that when I attach a part number tag to a duct or pipe item, it has a leader automatically added. I need to lose the arrow. Any ideas anyone? It's driving me crazy!
