Attaching a property set to objects

176 Views, 3 Replies

Hello Everyone,

I want to attach a property set for objects to a MV Block which is a toilet. I have created a PS definition and set to apply to objects and I have classified it as plumbing. When I go to the toilet MV Block to attach it, the property set does not even show there so I can attach it.

 

I have also created a similar PS definition and set it to apply to styles and definitions, and when I go to the toilet MV Block, that PS definitions shows.

 

Does anyone know how to attach the PS def for objects to the MV block, or know what might be going on.

Thank you for your help,

Have you specified the "Plumbing" classification in the toilet's Multi-View Block Definition?  If not, ADT will not offer a Property Set Definition that is classified as "Plumbing" to it.  (I assume that the Property Set Defintion has been set to apply to Multi-View Block References.)

Helllo David. You have answered questions for me before, and I appreciate it.

Yes, I have set both the MVB and the PS to be classified as plumbing. I have one PS that is called PlumbStyles and one that is called PlumbObjects. When I try to attach a PS to the toilet MVB, for example, the PlumbStyles shows up on the attach dialog, but the PlumbObjects does not. Both PS were created at thte same time; the only difference is the PlumbStyles is set to apply to styles and definitions and the PlumbObjects is set to apply to objects. Why will the PlumbStyles show up and not the PlumbObjects ? I prefer the PlumbObjects, but since it does not show up, I created PlumbStyles so at least I can have a schedule working.

Thanks again,

Wesley

Object-based Property Sets can be attached by selecting the object(s) and, on the Extended Data tab of the Properties palette, choosing the Add Property Sets button.  You should be offered all of the object-based Property Sets in that drawing file that apply to that object type that are not already attached to that object.

 

Style-based Property Sets can be attached by editing the object's style or defintion, and, on the General tab, choosing the Property Sets button.  You should be offered all of the style-based Property Sets in that drawing file that apply to that style or definition type that have not already been attached to that style or defintion.

 

Are you using some other method?  Are you expecting object-based property sets to show up when editing the style or defintion?  Have you double-checked your object-based Property Set to verify that, on the Applies To tab, the Objects radio button is selected?
