What's New in AutoCAD MEP 2013: Tag You're It! – Schedule Tag Enhancement

AutoCAD MEP 2013 has some great Scheduling tag enhancements to increase control over how tags and tag attributes are rotated to align with objects. New schedule tag properties-including Reference Text Angle, Attribute Angle Method, and Maintain Attribute Angle – are available to support functions such as rotating the entire tag instead of individual attributes. The tag can update and attribute rotation angles to maintain Right Reading or Force Horizontal when existing tags are automatically rotated in response to existing objects being rotated.
These changes will allow:
  • Increased control of tag and attribute rotation
  • The option to rotate entire tag instead of individual attributes
