Is there a setting to make an MvPart block symbol for a schematic display automatically "annotative" for a part library or template when creating a new drawing?
For example, I would like to use a schematic valve symbol to display for a mvpart at 1/4" scale, but then double in viewing size for 1/8" scale...for plotting purposes.
The only method we've found to set a schematic block (as part of mvpart) to annotative is by "right-clicking" on the mvpart, selecting "Edit MvPart Style", then 'Views", then selecting annotative. However this only changes one particular part size at a time in a specific drawing. We would like to make this part of our mvpart library instead (for all part sizes and for other part representations). Are there any options available?
Why don't you open up the catalog dwg where the part resides and set the symbol block to be annotative in that drawing. That way when you insert the part into the drawing the block will already be annotative. You will only have to do it once for each symbol block of each part.
btw, all of the out of the box parts are already setup this way. I have never had an issue with an out of the box part displaying inproperly regardless of what the scale is.
When I change the symbol block to annotative in the catalog drawing, and then use the content builder to modify the part, the symbol block defaults back to Annotative "off" (in the catalog drawing).
You mention that you are using valves as your mvparts. Valve schematic display is controlled by the system defintion. You need to look at the system defintion of the pipe you are drawing and make sure that in the single line graphics display tab the appropriate selection boxes are checked.
