Labelling in hotlinked files

Kathryn W
Participant
I am using hotlinked modules for a townhouse development I am documenting. I have labelled certain items in the .mod file and then placed the modules in my working file, in some cases the module in the working file is mirrored. In the mirrored modules some of the labelling is incorrectly located. I have centred the anchor point and the text alignment in an attempt to solve this issue but have had no success. Can you advise if there is a way to maintain the location of a label when the module is mirrored.

So, it seems that this issue is a known bug, which has not been fixed yet.

I have been told that, as a workaround you can download and use James Murray's Shape Tag from BIM Components.com, which works fine with mirroring.

I haven't tried this yet but thought I would share if anyone is having the same issue.
