dynamic block issue

252 Views, 8 Replies

I made a simple block for a utility pole in plan view. It consisted of a donut with one string of mtext beside it. I had  created it so that the text would orientate itself to be horizontal in each viewport regardless of the ucs angle. I later added a line for a guy wire and made the block dynamic with visibility states. Now I am unable to have the text orientate to a horizontal position in the viewports. Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Edit the block, delete the existing text, add it again.Does that help?

Is the text a block attribute or imbedded mtext in the block? Mtext in the block works on my end, but attributes will not

Thank you

Gee I put Mtext in a block and it worked. Are you sure you checked the visual fidelity box for the style to orient to the view? Can you post the block?

The box is checked. I've tried using text, mtext and attributes. I've tried making the text associative, I tried making it not associative. I tried clicking both "yes" and "no" to "match orientation to layout". When I insert it into a file containing all my other dynamic blocks and go into the block editor, I've tried clicking both "yes" and "no" to "associative. When I try to pick "yes" for "match orientation to layout", it immediately defaults back to "no". I've tried as many combinations of text types and settings as I can think of and nothing works - and I can't stop the "match orientation to layout" to defaulting back to no".

Hi,

 

Can you post the block so that we can examine it?

 

Thanks!
