This is a collection of several tools, commands, and blocks to speed up the process of
referencing and noting drawings.
User configurable options: See
individual commands below and Customizing the
block library system
SAMPLE ARCHITECTURAL SYMBOLS COMMAND SYNTAX:
(select from the
PLAN-Blks or ELEV-Blks pull-down)
Command: APS-PB01_ (default configuration,
may vary with customization)
Command: APS-EB01_ (default configuration, may
vary with customization)
The following dialog appears:
The white X's shown with each symbol
are there to help you to understand more about the symbol prior to inserting
it. When the symbol shown is simply inserted in the drawing the X shows the
insertion point. In the case of leaders (like the keynote symbol) the X lets
you know whether the command starts by drawing the arrow first or the symbol
(if it starts with the symbol, it shows the insertion point of the symbol). In
the case of the section cuts, it shows both that the insertion point is at the
center of the "bubble" and that the "bubble" is the first object drawn. With
the rectangular area callout command the two X's show you that the rectangle
is specified first. And so on...
