We have made cells with text in it. When we use this cells in a pattern, we need to edit the text afterwords. Since we use version Microstation Powerdraft 08.11.09.397 the text placed in patterns is no longer editable. When we place the cell with text in it as a cell, the text can be edited, as always was.
Can anybody help me with this? Is this an option or is this no longer possible with newer versions?
If nog longer possible, can this change be undone by Bentley in a new update?
I agree in previous builds the text within cells would remain as text following the patterning of an area. I have filed a request with dvelopment to have this reviewed in future versions ( ref# 78969 )
The change in behavior ensures that text that overlaps the pattern boundary can be correctly clipped.
I have also logged change request back in year 2008 regarding cells that are dropped and cut on shape border. If associative is disabled, then pattern cells are dropped and some are cut. This is unacceptable as then these are not cells anymore and do not conform to CAD standards. There is need for option that allows pattern only whole cells that fit without cutting them.
