I've posted about this before and I've come back to it, and this time with an example drawing attached.
When I select a block that contains a multiline attribute my AutoCAD does not display the corner grips of the attribute if its location is "locked" in the block. Is there a setting I can change to show grips in 2012? Apparently a co-worker of mine that uses 2011 has grips when selecting the block.
If I unlock the location I have grips (not the same ones I am used to seeing from mtext though) but I do not want the attribute location unlocked
I was understanding that the multiline attribute was simply an attribute containing an mtext. Am I mistaken?
Yes my colleague was accessing the same block, however I was incorrect, he was never able to access the grips of the mtext attribute without using the attribute editor. It was a mistake on his part explaining things to me.
So it appears that AutoCAD LT is not written to allow what it is that I am talking about . . . at least not in its "un-customized" default state when it is installed. Does anyone have a way to make work this work though? A macro, or customizing a diesel expression somewhere? I am open to learning how to do that kind of thing
