Re: Blocks and attributes

02-28-2012 11:28 AM in reply to: synlightingguy

So if you close and open the attached drawing the Attribs move on you?

 

Two questions:

1. When you open this Block in the Block Editor are you then Inserting the Block again or are you just expecting the change to show up?

2. If when you have changed the Attribs in the BE are you then running ATTSYNC on the block in Paperspace to update the Attribs in the block?

May I ask why did you post an exploded titleblock in this last drawing? Is that what you are doing, exploding the block to edit the content?

That explains why you think you cannot edit your block that I posted back, you are not using ATTEDIT or EATTEDIT commands perhaps which are designed to edit attributes inside unexploded blocks.

Yes you are correct every time i close and open the drawings with the block the bottom three attributes move and each time they move a little more each time in the same directions.  I have tried every sunniro to insert the attributes and the last three keep moving.  When I go into the block editor and move again back where i want them. but when i close the block editor the never moved back in the drawing.

as for your question numbered Two in all the research i did to try to figure this out i never saw the "AttributeSYNC"  please enlighten me.:smileyhappy:

i exploded the block to move the attribute where i wanted them to be in the location where they are to sit.  if i block edit them they dont move when i get back to the drawing.  I have learned very well how the Atteditors work.  lots of pratice the last few days.

Unlock your attributes, then you can move them without exploding the block with their grips.

Exploding blocks is an AutoCAD sin, and makes having attributes pointless :smileyhappy:

ATTSYNC is not in LT2008, no use trying to explore it.
