once in every 10 drawings i create in Autocad 2012, my 'annotative' bunches up the moment I re-visit the drawing.
thus I have to re-align text every time i open that drawing. (see the attached files)
What am I doing wrong.
My paperspace sheets do not contain multiple scales.
attachemnt 2 is how I want the text.
attachemtn 1 is what happens when I re-open the drawing.
Thanks in advance
Solved! Go to Solution.
upload your drawing with 2 or 3 of these objects. Without knowing how your objects are built it's not possible for one answer. It's quite different if the objects are of type Text or MText, Block and Attributes having the textstyle set to annotative or the Block is defined so ....

Heres the uploaded drawing.
In this dwg I had 2 sets of annotative scales
3/32" and 3/16".
Thank you for looking into this problem
ok, try the following steps, at least that worked for me using (plain) AutoCAD 2012 SP1
==> at my pc the MText object is placed at the position I defined previously at the move/grip-stretch usage.
What I see when I open your drawing: you have a lot of proxies embedded in your drawing, starting vom Mech2000 and some application vendors also. Make your drawing as clean as possible to get rid of them.
Also don't save your drawing back to DWG2000-format, let it be saved in the current version (because AutoCAD 2000 does not know anything about annoation text-scaling).

This drawing comes to me from various architects/engineers. I have no control over the s/w they use.
How can I make such drawings as clean as possible.
Thanks in advance
>> How can I make such drawings as clean as possible.
Activate ModelSpace, thaw all layers you need (and switch them on), then ZOOM Extents + ZOOM 0.5x
Start command _WBLOCK, select the entities on the ModelSpace ==> that gives you the option to create a new drawing holding only what you selected.
Another way may be to copy&paste the entities you need from the current drawing to a new one.
Then change to the new drawing and use _LAYOUT ==> _TEMPLATE to import the layouts from the old drawing to the current one.
Good luck, - alfred -
