Besides Civil 3D users, I know of no engineering firm that uses annotative text or dimensions in Model Space. I tend to teach people how to use it so that they know how. But I also teach them how to place text as dimensions in a layout tab since that is what I know most companies use and I don’t want the person to be thrown into a scenario where they don’t know how to do one or the other.
If you do answer “YES” Please explain how other disciplines (Structural. Electrical, mechanical) deal with your annotative text & Dims displaying in their model?
