Group Annotations

Question asked by John Wayman on Sep 18, 2015


I have no experience of API or VBA, so excuse my clumsy way of asking questions.

I am hoping to introduce my users to the CommonNotes macro by Lenny Kikstra, in order to place standard notes on our drawings.

As it stands, the macro produces 2 separate annotations:

the heading 'NOTES' , underlined and in a large typeface


the numbered list of Notes, not underlined and in a smaller typeface.


The 2 annotations are quite separate, so if I drag the heading, the notes do not follow and vice versa.


In SW, once I have placed the heading and the notes using the macro, I can easily CTRL-Select both heading and notes and Tools, Align, Group, to make the annotations 'stick together'.


How could I go about modifying Mr. Kikstra's macro to group the annotations automatically?


I note that his website has not been updated since 2007, so I can't ask him.


I would welcome any advice.
