What I have done in the past is use multiple files to show the various views of the large panel. The primary drawing would give the basic dimensions and all the other drawings would be zoomed-in views of different parts of the cabinet. The primary drawing would hold the actual part with everything dimensioned and then I xref ithis file into all the other files representing different views. To help with clarity, I put the dimensions on different layers and then turn off the ones I do not want to show in the auxilliary files.
That doesnt seem to change the problem. i can just use a different layout (paper space) to zoom in or out. i would like the have the p_tag1 displayed so its readable in the different views. If you have ever used annotative text then it will auto adjust its model size based on the papersize value you set. when your in your layout all you do is set the annotative scale of the page. this way if your zoomed in or to extents, the text on the page is always the same. you can also set different locations for the text based on the scale used.
I got an idea to try and insert fields that link to the symbols p_tag1. the fields can be set to annotative. the downside is i would have to create on for every item and it still doesnt solve my problem with the balloons. i guess i could only show the balloons on one layout and hide them on the rest.
I see what you're saying. I just did not try to have the text scale. For example, I would have Drawing B zoomed in to show the upper part of the panel and Drawing C zoomed to show the lower part of the panel.
