Re: Phantom OD Attached?

Hello

 

SORRY you right : I don't read correctly your post !

 

So during the MAPEXPORT, you must add the .ROTATION AutoCAD property : you will get the Rotation in Radian inside the SHP (or TAB or MIF-MID)

 

Then MAPIMPORT and you will get the Blocks and all the fields in OD (with the famous Rotation in Radians)

I know that all blocks are NOW horizontal !

 

Next step :

From a blank DWG (beware of the Units) you will use the drawings Group feature of MAP

and then you will define a Query that will draw the F204 block with a New rotation coming the Object Data field ROTATION !

 

Do you see that I mean ?

 

Bye, Pat

I do see what you mean. It's an extra step or two but should get me what I need.
I'll let you know if I have further problems.
Thanks for your time Pat.

Hello (Sorry for my bad US/English)

 

Sorry I have forgotten something ... The RADIANS "problem" !

 

In the blank DWG, please : UNITS are correct --- BUT you must set temporary the angle system as RADIANS !!

 

So when you will do the Query (in Draw mode) and says draw with a new rotation

coming from the MAP Object Data field ROTATION (which is in Radians) : NO PROBLEM !

 

After the Query in Draw Mode, you will set back the angle system to decimal or grads ...

 

I hope this will satisfy your needs !?

 

I am often doing this for the lack of ROTATION when doing MAPIMPORT ... If I have the ROTATION Info !?

 

Bye, Pat (Maybe a Kudos will be appreciated)

 

 

Bye, Pat
