NCS Drawing Title 23 - Can it be positioned to cell?

Robert Nichols
Advocate
I can't seem to set an NCS Drawing Title to be positioned to a cell on the layout. When I select "cell" on the position pulldown menu, then all the parameter options disappear in the dialog box. If I save the setting at "cell", there is no visible affect on the title placement, and if I reopen the drawing settings, it position value is reset to "drawing".

Does this feature not work with the NCS titles?

Hi All,

First, I would like to apologize for the trouble that you are having with this issue!

Unfortunately, I cannot tell for sure when a library update is made for USA version, but I found the workaround for this issue in our database already. Here is how you can fix the titles until an update is available:

- Duplicate and open the NCS Drawing Title 23 (or NCS Drawing Title 2 23)
- Click Master script
- Delete the independent 3 lines:
if iTitleFitMode = FITMODE_CELL	then
       intLinkTitleWidth[1] = FITMODE_LENGTH		: stLinkTitleWidth[1] = `Length Parameter`	: picLinkTitleWidth[1] = 0
endif

- In NCS Drawing Title around line 129 to 132
- In NCS Drawing Title 2 around line 122 to 125

I attached a screenshot showing where to delete the line, also include in the zip file my own modification for the 2 drawing titles. Thank you for your understanding!

Best regards,
Minh

GSNA tech support reports that this is a known bug with NCS Drawing Title 23 (among others). Try using NCS Drawing Title 22 from the AC 22 USA library until a library update is issued some time in the future.

So, are we going to get an update on this issue? I found a seperate error reporting with other aspects of the NCS drawing titles. There is a work around but does not help with the cell settings.
