    Posted: 18.Feb.2021 at 21:50
I have a dynamic block with 2 visibility states and 2 attributes. The purpose of the 2 visibility states is simply to either show or not show 1 of the attributes (the prefix) on the drawing. Regardless of the visibility state, I still want the attribute to exist and be edited so when I run a data extraction, I have the information. There will be instances on the same drawing where some blocks will have the prefix visible and some not visible. What I get from my block is not what I expect; when I choose to not show the prefix (visibility state where it is hidden), the prefix attribute no longer exists. Any idea on how to toggle the visibility while still maintaining the data? Thank you in advance!
