Does anyone know of a way to make the "User-Defined Block" option under the Fitting/Appurtenance Styles (Plan tab) be annotative?
The blocks I created to use here are set to be annotative, but when I change the annotative scale it seems to ignore that and not change the size of the block.
I want to do this primarily due to Fire Hydrants, a lot of our plans are generated at 1"=50' and to get the Fire Hydrants to display at that scale we have a block that is exaggerated in size, however, when we do have a plan that is at a smaller scale, say 1"=20' the default block is too large and I was hoping there was a way to make them annotative so they would size to the current scale.
Thanks for any help you can provide,
Judging from my tests and from what the HELP says about the User-Defined Block option, it doesn't appear that this is possible at this time:

It's also possible that other users have found ways to accomplish a similar task, and I encourage anyone to chime in with an suggestions.
Absolutely nothing I've done can make these fittings annotative other then adding annotative blocks to the drawing that are not a part of the pressure network. Fittings can't be annotative (for some reason), labels can't be rotated, labels aligned with the objects don't work because, even though the fitting looks rotated when you use the "Pipes and Fittings" command, they aren't rotated.
I'm at a lose. Anyone else have any ideas?
Anything but a pres network...
plines, dyn blocks & profile
algmnt, profile & C3D labels (blocks in labels can scale)
