Im sure this has probably been hit on a few million times but I cant seem to find anything on it and i am stuck here. I am using multiple versions of AC, I have AC MEP 2010, MEP 2011 and ACAD 2011. I am looking to recreate our existing blocks and make them annotative. Not a major deal until I hit the ones with attributes. When I create them I set the attributes to just be there using ATTDEF, then once I have them all where I want them I use BLOCK and select all items attributes and line work. From here I set it to be annotative. All seems well until I insert it into a drawing, the text and the device flex just fine but without bursting the block I cant seem to edit the attributes.
My first thought here was to remake the attributes to Verify thinking this may do something but I was wrong same thing. What the system is doing is making it a nested block, when I burst the block 1 time it turns it into line work and another block with editable attributes which is what I am shooting for in the first place with prompts on insertion. My question is what am I missing here? I feel like its fairly simple but I haven't been able to figure this out.
