Re: Explode block with attributes and annotative scale

10-22-2010 12:28 PM in reply to: eastridge23

I have found circular references in the block that you sent me, I will work to correct this for you but I was told that Augi Guild has a Attribute editor that will work to change all of the blocks, But I think that you can still make the change you looking for with a cleaned up block.

 

Have seen the same error on your side?

The one I sent you was blocked out of my drawing. That may be why it has a circular reference. The ones in my drawing were created in here so I don't know how they could.

How do you turn off your annotative scale? I select my attribute and go to properties but I can't turn it off becuase it is greyed out.


Use the BEDIT command, select your block. Once it opens in the block editor, open the property palette, in the section named BLOCK, change the annotation to NO, exit the block editor and save the block on exit.

That fixed my save issue. Thanks. The only issue now is the blocks are super small. Looks like I will have to modify the block to get it the correct size.

Thats what I am seeing as well, and then if you start messing with the annotative scale it really messes with the block, what scale are you looking to use?

That helped thanks a bunch. I used the replace block with another block and I can save again in seconds and it is the correct size. This is a work around so if anyone can figure out why annotative scaled text slows CAD down so much I would greatly appreciate it.

 

Thanks again folks for your help.

If you where to remove all of the text scales that you have with the block will help a little.

You have five different sizes in the block you sent me.

 

Also true Type fonts will slow you down, but you where using shape files so I don't think that was your issue but if you have other fonts that are true type they will cause the slow down.

 

I am sure other might have more to add, glad it helped.
