Visibility Parameters

Found a new way to annotate blocks and facilitate output to databases.  Use the visibility parameters on dynamic blocks.  This lets you set what is visible vs invisible on the block for whatever parameter you have currently chosen.  Use this to display hydrologic group or land use rating (fair,good,poor) for instance.  This data can then be extracted, then copied and paste it to the spreadsheet exported map3d attributes (put an attribute in the object data that will be blank upon export, then copy with the land uses).
