Wire No too close to the wire

Hello All When I do automatic wire numbering, the wire numbers are placed above the wire. On scaling them (by say a factor of 2), I find they are placed too close to the wire. I can use the Move Attrib command but that seems too tedious. Is there an easier / better way out Thanks and Regards Abhishek Singhal

Abhishek In order to move the wire numbers further out from the wire, you should be able to go into the wire number blocks and move the attribute up or out. This will move it slightly farther from the insertion point which would give the effect when inserting that it is farther away from the wire. A little background info: The wire numbers are blocks, and the program knows what wire numbers are associated with what wires because when inserted, the insertion point of the wire number block gets placed directly on the wire. There will be multiple blocks making up the wire numbers. wd_wnh and wd_wnv Keep this in mind and be careful when editing this block. If you use the Extra wire numbers, these are also block and you will need to modify them as well. wd_wch and wd_wcv Please keep in mind that this problem is occurring because you are scaling as things are inserted, should you ever set the scale back to 1, these blocks being modified will probably need changed back to their original forms in order to look correct again. You may want to create copies before you modify them! -- Regards, Jared Bunch Technical Support Specialist Autodesk, Inc "Abhishek Singhal" wrote in message news:3ffd6ae3_1@statler... > Hello All > > When I do automatic wire numbering, the wire numbers are placed above the > wire.

Cool ... I figured I'd be better off scaling the wd_wch and wd_wcv .... Great ..Thanks ! someone tell me y do i keep forgetting that when it comes to ACADE, IABS is the keyword [Its All in the Blocks Stupid] !
