I'm working on creating some blocks for our office. Basically it is a simple block with a few lines that remain and then a couple attributes you can click on and change. I have added the attribute and all is working well.
My only issue is I would like to make the text in the attributes to be bold. For some reason I can't see to do this. Is it not possible.
Basically I want to try and get some of the attributes to stand out more than others. I tried changing the color and the lineweight of the attibute (which worked the color is different) but when it prints it doesn't change at all.
The attribute text is going to be based upon the Text Style and the Font assigned to the Text Style. When you create the Attribute in the Attribute Definition dialog box you can select what Text Style you want the attribute to use. Or you can modify the Text Style assigned to an Attribute within a Block by using the EATTEDIT or BATTMAN commands. So sounds like you need to setup another Text Style that uses a .shx font that is bold in nature, or use a True Type font that supports a Bold Font style, and then assign that Text Style to the Attributes as described above. Type STYLE on the command line to bring up Text Style dialog box.
Have you run ATTSYNC on the block yet? Logically it should run automatically when you edit an attribute and exit the block editor, or at least prompt you to with a dialog. I am sure it is on the Autodesk list of things to do.
