Draw & annotate lines

Post by Michael Parrella » Wed Jul 02, 2008 7:06 am

Has anyone ever encountered a problem annotating & drawing lines by inversing between point? For some reason the program refuses to annote and draw a line between two points when I inverse them in cogo. I have the level active, it's not locked, the hot toogles boxes are checked and the pop-up menu displays the info but it won't draw or annotate the line. I tried saving the file shutting the hot toggles off and turning them back on but still no luck. I am running MSCAD 2008 on Vista (no service packs have been installed). I am able to annotate other points and even tried changing the layer and that didn't help annotating/drawing the lines beween these points.
Thanks for any help.

Is there already a line drawn between those two points on another layer? We can only draw a single line between any two points via COGO. Turn on and thaw all layers to check this.

That is probably the problem as I know that I have that info on another layer. Can we put that option on the wish list?
Thanks for the quick reply!!!
