I have a unique issue - can't find an answer for this one. I have a
drawing with a problem with all the blocks that have attributes. If I
want to move or copy any block with attributes, the attribute offsets
double to the distance, in the same direction that I'm moving or
copying the block.
Does that make sense? Let me elaborate.
If I move or copy any block that has an attribute, the attribute
doesn't stay with the block. Let's say I move a block 3'-0" @ 0
degrees. The block item moves 3'-0" at 0 degrees, but the attribute
moves 6'-0" @ 0 degrees. If I move the block 20'-0" @ 135 degrees, the
block item moves 20'-0" @ 135 degrees, but the attribute moves 40'-0"
@ 135 degrees.
The same thing happens if I copy the block.
I'm using AutoCAD 2009. Not sure what version the drawing was created
in - we received it from a vendor. They did use CAP for the modular
furniture layout (furniture blocks with attributes). But, the problem
is happening with all attributed blocks, including Column bubbles, not
just the CAP furniture pieces.
Any clues as to how to keep the attribute attached to the block? I'm
sure it's something simple like a 0/1 toggle, but I can't find the
Thanks in advance,
