It is possible to link cable marker tags to component tags. So that when a component tag is changed the cable marker tag is also changed.
Thanks in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You can make cable markers invisible by editing the dwg and doing a swap block. the cable marker value will still be there when doing any reports though.
I do know how to edit a symol and make an attribute invisible. However not sure how to make the symbol invisible. Please can you advise how to edit a block and make the symbol invisible.
You could have the component drive the marker if you made it a child component.
But that means you would need a child cable marker for every component that the marker would "Pull" its tag from.
I'm not sure I would go through the trouble unless I really had to.
To hide the tag, this can be done a few different ways.
You can use the Hide Attribute Command (single or Group whichever works best for the Situation).
You can edit the component (As stated by Bob), Hide the text.
To hide the text set the attributes to invisible in the attributes properties.
Hide the component itself.
To hide the component delete the geometry (or draw a straight line with wire connections on both sides) and leave the attributes.
I hope this helps,
