Edit Attribute Dialog Box

Edit Attribute Dialog Box

Allows you to edit attributes for a block definition.

The Edit Attribute dialog box contains the following tabs:

  • Attribute
  • Text Options
  • Properties

List of Options

The following options are displayed.

Block Name

Displays the name of the block whose attributes are to be edited.

Auto Preview Changes

Controls whether or not the drawing area is immediately updated to display any visible
attribute changes you make. If Auto Preview Changes is selected, changes are immediately
visible. If Auto Preview Changes is cleared, changes are not immediately visible.

Clearing Auto Preview Changes results in a small improvement in performance. Auto
Preview Changes is not available if Apply Changes to Existing References is not selected.

Attribute Tab (Edit Attribute Dialog Box)

Defines how a value is assigned to an attribute and whether or not the assigned value
is visible in the drawing area, and sets the string that prompts users to enter a
value. The Attribute tab also displays the tag name that identifies the attribute.

Mode

Mode options determine whether and how attribute text appears.

Invisible

Displays or hides the attribute in the drawing area. If selected, hides the attribute
value in the drawing area. If cleared, displays the attribute value.

Constant

Identifies whether the attribute is set to its default value. You cannot change this
property. If a check mark is shown in the check box, the attribute is set to its default
value and cannot be changed. If the check box is empty, you can assign a value to
the attribute.

Verify

Turns value verification on and off. If selected, prompts you to verify the values
you assign to the attribute when inserting a new instance of the block. If this option
is cleared, verification is not performed.

Preset

Turns default value assignment on and off. If selected, sets the attribute to its
default value when the block is inserted. If cleared, ignores the attribute’s default
value and prompts you to enter a value when inserting the block.

Lock Location

Locks the location of the attribute within the block reference. When unlocked, the
attribute can be moved relative to the rest of the block using grip editing, and multiline
attributes can be resized.

Multiple Lines

Indicates whether the attribute was defined as a Multiple Lines attribute and can
contain multiple lines of text.

Data

Data options set the attribute text that is displayed.

Tag

Sets the identifier assigned to the attribute.

Prompt

Sets the text for the prompt that is displayed when you insert the block.

Default

Sets the default value assigned to the attribute when you insert the block.

Text Options Tab (Edit Attribute Dialog Box)

Sets the properties that define the way an attribute’s text is displayed in the drawing.
Change the color of attribute text on the Properties tab.

Text Style

Specifies the text style for attribute text. Default values for this text style are
assigned to the text properties displayed in this dialog box.

Justification

Specifies how attribute text is justified.

Height

Specifies the height of the attribute text.

Rotation

Specifies the rotation angle of the attribute text.

Annotative

Specifies that the attribute is annotative.

Backwards

Specifies whether or not the text is displayed backwards.

Upside Down

Specifies whether or not the text is displayed upside down.

Width Factor

Sets the character spacing for attribute text. Entering a value less than 1.0 condenses the text. Entering a value greater than 1.0 expands it.

Oblique Angle

Specifies the angle that attribute text is slanted away from its vertical axis.

Boundary Width
(Available for multiple-line text attributes only) Specifies the maximum length of
each line of text before it wraps to the next line. If the value is 0.000, no restriction
is placed on the length of the line of text.

Properties Tab (Edit Attribute Dialog Box)

Defines the layer that the attribute is on and the color, lineweight, and linetype
for the attribute’s line. If the drawing uses plot styles, you can assign a plot style
to the attribute using the Properties tab.

Layer

Specifies the layer that the attribute is on.

Linetype

Specifies the linetype of attribute text.

Color

Specifies the attribute’s text color.

Lineweight

Specifies the lineweight of attribute text.

Changes you make to this option are not displayed if the LWDISPLAY system variable
is off.

Plot Style

Specifies the plot style of the attribute.

If the current drawing uses color-dependent plot styles, the Plot Style list is not
available.
