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 user to place a cell with an annotation scale applied to it.
In order to use this 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 that requires the annotation scale.4. Go to the properties icon on the Model Manager and Enable "can be placed as an annotation cell".
Once this is enabled, and the "annotation scale" lock is set, the annotation scale icon located in the "place active cell" dialog can be selected.
If neither one of these are enabled, the annotation scale icon will appear grayed out.
