Been sometime since I constructed DB's so feeling a bit rusty, attached is a simple block for polar stretch and flip text.
It works as intended without any problems but since I used a block property tablet to control my polar-angle-flip the entire block is a bit slow for my computer to handle, anybody got an idea of how to archieve the same function without using a block property tablet.
PS: I don't want anymore grips then the one I have.
Function: See attached, when the polar parameter angle goes above 180° the text flips over the line.
Had a bash at trying to make my suggestion work but couldn't; I got the intermediate attribute to update so that I only had 5 different values to deal with but I couldn't get the flip state to change based on the attributes value.
I don't know if a similar approach using constraints and user parameters might work but I simply can't get my head round constraints at all so I wouldn't know where to start with that approach.
Not too sure you can if you need the text the Stretch away from the dot as well.
You've done this that I have attached haven't you?
If not I've attached several examples of this type of rotation for you to look dissect.
I don't think there is any other way to archieve the same function without using a block property tablet, not when the line is supposed to be centered under the text at all time... =/
Charles, you had some good alternatives but in this specific case I need the line to be centered under the text, and your alternative "Test-1.dwg" would in other cases be an excellent substitue, the only problem is that when the text is placed in 90° the line will cover the text if the text is over 4 letters, in my case the text will range between 5-16 letters.
Thank you all for inputs!
