I have created an annotation style for a control valve which works fine but I am trying to add the same annotation style to some other symbols and it gives me an error saying "Style xxx already exists in drawing!"
There are plenty of other symbols using the same annotation style as one another so what am I doing wrong here?
You'll have to define it at a higher level in the class tree. Annotations, like most properties, are inherited from parent classes.
Thanks Dave, that fixed it but now I have another problem.
The particular annotation style I have created is required to be used on every piece of equipment or instrument that has any I/O on it. So at the moment if I annotate a control valve the Object Type and Loop Number are displayed but if I annotate say a motor, only the Type will display.
Is there a way to have the 'Loop Number' (for say a control valve) and the 'Number' (for say a motor) in the same attribute?
The way I have gotten around it at the moment is to have an attribute called #(TARGETOBJECT.LOOPNUMBER) and another attribute called #(TARGETOBJECT.NUMBER) on top of each other but this is not ideal as the attribute not being used still displayes the dot (.)
