Has anyone found a better solution to this yet? Who do we have to bribe/threaten/plea to to get annotation scaling finally supported in ACM 20 after it was introduced? Or at least get us a sysvar to switch just this message off (the expert 5 level doesn't work either.. )

Canceling out of the message can be done with Expert 5, however to get it to work consitently you need to embed it in a LSP routine and run it in the startup suite.

 

;;;LSP Routine

(defun c:startup()

(command "expert" "5")

)

 

(c:startup)

;;;;LSP Routine

 

save above in a plain text file with extension .lsp in a support folder of autocad and then in load applications add in to the startup suite

That is still no real option, as most users actually are not expert level 5 and need all the other alerts.

 

Autodesk should actually do an actual update on AutoCAD Mechanical (instead of just sticking the Genius/Mechanical shell on a new AutoCAD version - regardless of the bugs - and taking the extra cash for ACM licenses w/o really giving anything back).

 

Annotative objects have been in AutoCAD for over a decade now, about time to support them (and Truetype Fonts, and parametics, and dynamic blocks and _paperspace_ (!!!)... you know, stuff that should've been supported already for longer then some users' ages.)
