Rotation of Object OR Text
« on: July 11, 2013, 02:11:51 PM »
I have a block that needs to be rotated based on the location of this block, but along with the geometry, I also have an attribute whose rotation angle I would like to remain at 0.

Part A of my question is Would it be better to put the rotation on the text or on the lines of the block?

Part B is ... how do I do it?  Still haven't ventured very far into Dynamic Blocks.  :oops:

Thanks!

Not sure about the attribute part, but for rotating the block I would use an alignment parameter (see attached DWG).

we ended up using a reactor to keep the attribute's rotation at zero in the blocks that used alignment parameters.

For a attribute its position must be locked, and agree with Matt on using a alignment parameter.
 
For a start here is a rotation action for the whole block(lines and symbols) and one for the text only.

Hi,

Try this  :-)

Alignment parameter is good for quickly rotate blocks, but I don't this you can rotate attribute.
So i used a rotate action and move action, then you can rotate the block, and the attribute will follow ...

huhu, it's my first post since i registered  :-o
