Annotative attributes in NON-Annotative block

I have a co-worker who needs to create a block where the attributes scale with the anno scale, but the block container does not. He's creating a tree block and wants the canopy and trunk attributes to scale without scaling the tree symbol.


Making an attribute annotative and applying the scales to the attributes doesn't seem to work if the block itself isn't annotative.


Are we missing something, or is this just not possible?

Works here, ACAD 2013.  Pretty sure it works on your version. Make sure you add the annotation scale to the block even though it is not annotative itself.  Testing with annoautoscale set to on works.
