I am creating my own titleblocks for a certain project and just switched to Cad 2010 from 2006. I am drafting the titleblocks in their own model space and then XREF'ing it into the layout spaces of my drawings (a seperate file). For some reason, the MTEXT will not show up in an XREF'ed file. I was able to get the text to show up once I exploded it in the original titleblock file, but obviously not a real solution.
MText, on it's own visible layer, custom text style with Annotative properties enabled. No show. ?
I believe it is related to the annotative/not annotative settings. I'm not savvy enough to know much about the Annotative Scale. Is this related to the command ANNOAUTOSCALE? In which case, the default is set to -4.
In any case, the style "notes" (which I discovered is a default setting with the template drawing) is defaulted to annotative and "standard" is defaulted not annotative. But going into the text manager, and physically altering the Notes Style to not annotative does not seem to affect the disappearing text (if the text is Notes style -- even if I unselect annotative -- it still does not appear in the x-ref'ed title block in the subsequent layouts).
