Now, THAT is an ingenious fix.

And yes, the word is Dimension.

thanks :smileyvery-happy:

But if you find the time would you have a look at it? because i haven't worked a load whit dimensions.

What i would like is that you don't see the lign in the midle of your dimension itself.

One solution is to make the dimension tiny but i don't like that one :smileytongue:

If you are non-LT user try that .dll which mentioned

 

http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?id=18162650&siteID=123112

 

I compile it for you. Simply use NETLOAD command and load "KeepAttS.dll" and use "KS" to run command. You will see atts keep straight any conditions.

 

DOWNLOAD KeepAttS.dll

Thank you for the response but i have olready tried that solution.

But what i disliked about it is that the text always keeps horizontal.

And what i liked to do whit my blog is being able to rotate the text itself until you go past 90 degrees.

Then you flip it and it is still readable.

 

Unfortunatly my knowladge of VB is to small (can't even get a simple script running :smileytongue:) to change the original dll. That is why i tried using the dimensions.

 

Regards

Dimstyle will allow you to suppress Dim Lines and Extention Lines.

You could most likely turn these "off" in the Dimstyle you are using.

Re: Right reading test when rotate block

Im having a problem whit the tekst modification.

The block in atachemend gives the example.

The block itselfs works fine as long as i only rotate the block.

But once i use the allingment parameter the text won't work as expected.

 

Hope somebody can help me whit this!

 

Regards

Re: Right reading test when rotate block

Think of it this way:

The Rotation Action is Rotating the DynBlk from its standard state thus doing what it is intending to do.

The Alignment Parameter is taking the DynBlk and rotating as a whole. Meaning that within the DynBlk micro world its relative UCS just changed. It now thinks that up is down or whatever. It is stil performing as designed it has just been flipped over or around.  I suspect that if you rotated the actual USC to whatever angle the line is you would likely see your DynBlk perform as you expect.

That is an interesting explenation, but the solution isn't usable.

The reason is that i use several of thes blocks in my drawing whit all diferent angles.

 

So i simply aded a rotation paramter to my text so it can be rotated if nessesery.

 

But thanks for the remark.

 

Regards

I knew that changing the UCS is not a viable option but offered that as a way to explain why the effect of the text flipping did not yield the expected results.

This block still works as you intend it just is doing so at a different angle when you use the Alignment Parameter.

Your proposal to add another Rotate Action for angled lines is the only way to acheive what you seek.
