Questions - Can some body help

  1. I can’t find out how to change the text size for the end connection annotations, line numbering annotations, and diameter annotations.
  2. The generated data in the BOM table is cyan rather than by layer (which would make it black), how can I make this generate so that the colour is by layer?
  3. How can I turn off the line number annotation that generates in the isometric drawing?

regards

Try on isometric dwg settings and setup title block; there you can change what you want. As it is showed, in the attachment, in th Iso Theme you can change the text, the sort of default styles. See that the content of the cell that its text appears in cyan color is locked; you can unlock it, modify its color, and then lock it again. There is a different way of changing it; but it is more complex, it is changing the xml file.

Edit the Isoconfig.xml file and look for the following line:

 

          <LineNumberScheme Name="LineNumber" AnnotationStyle="Standard" Format="{0}-{1}" Alignment="SkewAligned" LeaderStyle="AsNeeded" ComponentFields="Size PIPING-SPEC" LineFields="PIPELINE-REFERENCE" ComponentFormat="{0}-{1}" LineFormat="{0}" />

 

 

And change it as follows:

 

          <LineNumberScheme Name="LineNumber" AnnotationStyle="Standard" Format="{}" Alignment="SkewAligned" LeaderStyle="AsNeeded" ComponentFields="Size PIPING-SPEC" LineFields="PIPELINE-REFERENCE" ComponentFormat="{0}-{1}" LineFormat="{0}" />

Thanks Omar,

took your guidance and it helped.

I’m still trying to find out how to either change the format for or get rid of the isometric line number annotation (see attached, the annotation I am referring to is circled in yellow).

 

Let me know

 

regards
