I would like to retrieve the value of an annotation feature class reference scale using ArcPy (under ArcGIS 10.1).
I cannot find where this property is stored (tried to access using the describe object, but it doesn't seem to be there).
The aim is an ArcPy-batched run of the "Append Annotation Tool". This tool holds the Reference Scale as one of the required parameters.
- For one class, I can look it up (in the source class properties)
- For many classes, I would rather batch the process with ArcPy i.e. Provide all annotations as input classes, and read the value of that reference scale for each of them, then reuse this value as a parameter in the Append process. The reference scale is easily accessed in programming, so I was hoping it is accessible one way or another via ArcPy.
What do you think?
