    Question Annoying exclamation point

    Was wondering where I go to turn off the little exclamation point that appears on ends of conduit/pipe/duct when it's not connected to a part (parametric or mvpart). It's fairly annoying especially if you insert a mvpart and it's got 12 connection points and each one has this little triangle with a exclamation point in it. Please....oh please....help...sos....oh guess i should note I'm using Autocad MEP 09

    We're still on ABS07, but investigating going to AMEP 09....

    If you have the "!"'s turned on...do they print out??
    Or do you have to turn them off in order for them not to plot?

    Even if the !'s are on (visible), they will not print out.

    That is good news.

    I have some guys who are going to use the DWG TrueView 09 program and we see many "!"'s for 07 ABS dwgs.

    Thank you!

    I don't have any experience with the DWG TrueView, so I don't know if they'll show up there or not. All I know is that if you plot a drawing to paper, the !'s don't show up.

    Good luck!
