Annotative object scale on R-Click menu -bug?

786 Views, 6 Replies

Possible bug here, anyone know if there's a user fix I can apply...?

 

Selecting a single annotative object (say a block reference) and right-clicking gets the pop-up menu with the submenu for annotative objects scale commands that lets me add/delete & sync scales.

 

However if I select multiple annotative objects the sub-menu isn't presented when I right click.

 

Anyone else got this?

This behaviour has been reported to our developers.

As a workaround, you can add the commands to the shortcut:

 

1. Type CUI > Enter

2. In the Customize tab expand Shortcut menus (under Customizations in All Files)

3. Expand Edit Menu

4. Right-click Edit Menu and create a new sub-menu called Annotative Object Scale

5. Add the commands that you need under this submenu such as Add Current Scale, Delete Current Scale, Add/Delete Scales, Synchronize Multiple-scale Positions

Click OK and check if the shortcut menu works.

 

Hope this helps,

Hi,

You can set the scales in the Properties palette.

 

Cheers,

I know about setting the scale, but trying to synchronise multiple scale positions cannot be done via the properties palette.

 

Any other ideas?

In a nutshell yes.

 

I get it with a single block selected, but not multiples.

 

It seems to behave itself in 2010 - however the 'upgrade' to 2012 seems to have removed this feature.

Thanks,

 

I cut & paste from the block menu to give the whole 'Annotative Object Scale' submenu a-la 2010 style.. That now seems to work.
