Annotative Blocks with attributes

Recommended Posts

E-BUSS

Hi All,

 

We have created annotative blocks out of our existing blocks which seem to scale fine when used from toolpalettes.

 

The problem we're having is that if any of them contain attributes, the text does not scale properly (much too large), only the linework scales correctly. The wierd thing is that if I sync the attributes using battman after insertion the attributes will scale down to the appropriate size.

 

When we use the normal insert dialog box to browse for the block and insert it from there, all is fine.

 

Has anyone else run into this?

 

Thanks

I don't use annotative blocks but I think when you use a palette (or design centre?) you are pulling in a copy of the block not a raw block definition.

 

I have a similar problem. I have blocks showing banks of terminals that stretch & array into groups. The block definition is only of 2 terminals but the drawing I drag them from shows them to have about 5 terminals. When pulled from a palette the 5 terminal block comes in but on subsequent insertions only 2 get shown.

I am having a lot of problems with 2009 and blocks. I think it would be easier for you to make your blocks 1:1 and have your block scale to your current dimscale. This will only wokr if you are inserting from tool palette or using keyin command froma lisp to insert them. There might be other ways but I have not tried them yet.
