I'm having an issue with creating a column bubble block that would have an attribute and both be annotative.
I've created a 3/8" dia circle with 3/16" text and the text is NOT annotative. The bottom of the circle is at 0,0 with the text justification at MC
I create the block of the circle and text and make it annotative and save
When I insert it into another drawing, the block inserts properly and scales as desired. The issue is when inserted, I'm NOT given the option to fill in the column # attribute. I can double click and enter text, but this should happen during insertion.
When I create the block, if I do NOT select the attribute as part of the block, I am given the option for the attribute during insertion but it does not scale automatically.
What am I doing wrong? I'm attaching my block as an example.
Thanks for your response. No, it's already set to 1 which is what I want.
Maybe there is another way to accomplish this task and I'm making it harder than I should. Bottom line, I want to be able to insert a column bubble into my drawing that will automatically scale to the proper size and allow me to fill in the attribute during insertion. I can insert the current one we have but it's NOT annotative and we're trying to convert all of our standard blocks to annotative.
Why don't you make the block that works the way you want it to annotative? To do that, at the dialog box that you get when you create a new block, pick the name of the block that is working correctly & then put a check in the box by Annotative. That block is now redefined as annotative & should work the way you want it to.
