    Default ACA 2008 & Annotation Scaling

    im not quite sure where to put this -

    having read about the dynamic annotation scaling in ACA 2008, does anyone know how that will work with annotation blocks & dynamic blocks? we arent using the AEC stuff, and as such we currently have quite a few DB's that we use, and it would be excellent if we would be able to apply the multiple scale factors to them, so multiple layers & blocks in the drawing arent required.

    This aggression will not stand. Man.

    I know next to nothing about dynamic blocks, but you can create regular AutoCAD blocks that are "annotative" and will change size with changes to scale. I would hope that the annotative scaling would be integrated with dynamic blocks.

    from the help file (and this does work on dynamic blocks)





    Use this procedure to edit a legacy Architectural Desktop blocks, such as callouts or titlemarks, and add an annotative property.

    1. Open the legacy Architectural Desktop drawing in AutoCAD Architecture.
    2. Specify the same annotation scale in the new AutoCAD Architecture drawing as in the legacy Architectural Desktop drawing.
    3. On the Command Line, enter BEDIT to open the Block Editor.
    4. In the Edit Block Definition dialog, select the block to edit, and then click OK.
    5. On the Properties Palette, under Block, select Yes for Annotative.
    6. On the Block Editor toolbar, click Close Block Editor and then save your changes.
    Any blocks of the selected block style are now annotative.
