Anyone have a fix? I have a consultant using R2012 that's not using any Annotative features: we are.
We send him files, he sets CANNOSCALE to 1:1 for his needs, all our blocks/text/dimensions/mleaders etc. shrink down.
- SAVEFIDELITY is not applicable here.
- -EXPORTTOAUTOCAD is no go, he has R2012 remember.
- DXFOUT is no go either, no matter how far you save down.
- BEDIT each block would take forever. Text and dimstyles a little easier but still manual.
- PROPERTIES doesn't cut it with blocks.
- CHANGE command>Properties>Annotative doesn't really work either.
Since there is no roundtrip need with those files, I wrote a quick and dirty lisp to BURST all the blocks (and reset the styles) for him then purged the files. But one day I guess I will need to do it better.
Open to ideas that work for you.
Who is working for who here?
Looking at this from a management standpoint, rather than technical....
Can't the "boss" firm set the rules (contract terms) and make the other party adhere to the these standards?
If he's not using annotative objects, why does he care what CANNOSCALE is? If he just leaves it alone it should be all right, shouldn't it?
That's the challenge: they XREF our files into theirs, and they set CANNOSCALE to 1:1 in the top file. All our blocks shrink by default. I suggested the same thing but they seem to rigid in the office drafting standards (and rightly so of course).
Any answer in how to change a Associative block to Non-Associative? I have a similar circumstance and the only thing I can think of is to replace all 100+ blocks.
Are you still looking for a solution to change Annotative block to Non-Annotative without exploding or replacing the blocks?
I have a solution using BatchInDatabase tool wihich is being updated now and is it possible to give me a sample file to check?, if so that would be great.
some good and some bad. I'm going to reattach the file because there was some cad junk on it. Look for the magenta block lines come off the UD line at 90 degree angles. The UD is an underdrain with a stormline attached at 90 defrees, with an existing inlet at the other end.
