I'm working in a company, producing cadastral maps in ArcGIS where some clients prefer the maps being delivered in a .dwg-format. We're using a tool which preserves the feature class styles when importing them into AutoCAD.
The problem is how to handle som texts in the cartographic visualization. As we're not really allowed to move around objects in the enterprise database but still want some adjacent annotation classes, eg. administrative property information, to be visualized in the layout and the product, I can't really find a solution.
- Converting the text to graphic would label the layer 'Graphic' in the DWG.
- Exporting the layer to a file geodatabase and make the edits solves the problem. But might be time consuming.
- Entering edit mode, move the annotations, make the export and stop editing without saving seems to be the fastest practice but at the same time a bit risky if the user by accident saves the edits.
So what I basically want is a method of making changes in the text, that doesn't store them in the enterprise database but still preserves the attributes of an annotation class.
Does anyone have a solution for the issue?
