What is an annotation cell?Product: MicroStation V8 XM EditionVersion: 08.09.01.20Area: Cells
There has been a new feature added to MicroStation which allows a userto place a cell with an annotation scale applied to it. In order to usethe functionality it must be enabled on the cell itself.
To do this:1. Open the cell library as you would a design file.2. Open the Model Manager; the cells are listed as models.3. Browse to the cell to have the annotation scale applied to.4. Go to the properties icon on the Model Manager and Enable "can beplaced as an annotation cell".
Once this is enabled and the "annotation scale" lock is set, the userwill be able to choose the annotation scale icon located in the "placeactive cell" dialog. If neither one of these is enabled, the annotationscale icon will be grayed out.
