Cad Mask (Library Vs Cad Detail)

Recommended Posts

I have a mask that I use for Interior Wall Elevations.  It includes some additional graphics to display the Callout, View Name & Scale.

If I place it in the Library, I have to first Block it.  Then  when I put it in the Wall Elevation view I have to UnBlock so I can edit the widths, etc.

 

OTOH, I can add it to a CAD Detail Window and then group select to copy to the Wall Elevation view and avoid the UnBlock operation.

 

I kind of wish there was an "automatic UnBlock" option for CAD Blocks placed in the Library.  That's probably never going to happen.

 

How would you handle this.

I think the ability to group select a collection of items and add them to the library is a good solution to this. I think that all single or group selection of objects should be able to be put in the library.

I would love that - it would make it much easier to build a Library of reusable objects.
