Our company is currently transitioning from AutoCAD \ Civil 3D over to BricsCAD. As part of this process I am trying to resolve all issues with template objects & lisps that worked in AutoCAD but not in BricsCAD.
One example is with a block we use to create "halo" text - that is text with a white halo border around it so text is guaranteed to be readable on aerials (basic coloured text doesn't always work). The block consists of 17 identically named attributes. The one in the center is red (pen 10) and the other 16 forming a halo around the outside of this are white.
When inserted in AutoCAD you only have to edit one of the attributes at random and the contents of the rest automatically change to match as they are in effect many copies of the same attribute.
For some reason BricsCAD is treating these identically names attributes differently. As such when you edit one attribute the rest do not update. It appears we would need to update each of them individually which is not practical. I have attached a drawing with the halo block in it for reference.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could make this work? Or is there an alternative out there that can be suggested to replace this block?
