Annotative Objects - Aarrg!

Like using annotative objects in 2012.  Have annoautoscale set to -4.

Everything good until today.  All of a sudden all objects have all scales.  Drawing is a mess!

For some reason it acts like all scales apply to all annotative objects.  So I have to spend hours deleteing and re-adding scales.  What happened? anybody else experienced this?

Do you work in an office with a practical joker for a coworker? It sounds like somebody messed with your settings...

If by some odd chance my nattering was useful -- that's great, glad to help. But if it actually solved your issue, then please mark my solution as accepted :smileyhappy:

No merry prankster involved.  It just happened.

 

 

Thought I had annoautoscale disabled with the default setting (-4).

 

Now I see r2013 has a setting of 0. 

 

Is that a valid setting in 2012?

Hi,

 

The setting of 0 is also in 2012:

Could you also confirm if setting the variable back to 4 solved this for you?

 

Thanks,
Dan

the drawing has been behaving since after I went through it and deleted scales.

autoannoscale (I believe) was set to -4.

It is now set to zero.

I usually keep an eye on the "lightning bolt/tri-scale" icon in the tray and it seeems it has always been turned-off.

 

Lets wait and see if it happens again (I hope it does, so I will know I am not crazy), then I will stop immediately on the drawing and send it.
