    Default Moving Text Objects relative to base point as other Objects are moved / scaled

    For all the Dynamic blocks that i have built and all the possible ones that have have yet to build there is one huge thing that I can not figure out.
    When I have a block lets say a detail box and i want to have the lower right hand corner be my base point and then have text in the upper left corner, how can i resize the box and have the text also move with it. I have tried using a move parameter but it still does not want to work. I have also tried setting it up with a visibility parameter but then i will end up with multiple strings of text.

    Hi Will

    Please note I have *moved* this thread from the AutoCAD 2007 General forum to this one, as I feel this particular forum is a more appropriate place for such a topic.

    Thanks, Mike

    sounds like you want Mtext in a box? Sorry, but it won't happen in a 'true' DB. I've done something similar tho, created a block that's exploded upon insertion that has a DB box (w/ one grip for stretching the corner thats opp. the text base) around an Mtext entity. It works pretty slick. I can post the note box when i get to work... if i remember...
    Sometimes, i get lost in my own thoughts and need to ask directions to find my way back.

    Could you post a sample of what you are trying to do? Is the text supposed to be editable?
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    someone posted a way to do that a while back. the text sat in a rectangle that adjusted itself according to the text. im not sure if it was in tips & tricks or hot news, or somewhere else though.
