Dynamic title blocks

I need to create a dynamic title block, so I can change the date on layout 1 and all the others change too. Can someone point me in the right direction to learn how to do this?

Add your date to the Custom tab of Drawing Properties(dwgprops). Put a field in the title block to retrieve this value.

In the title block insert a field, in the Field dialog set the Field Category on Document and you should see your custom properties.

 

When you have your drawing template file the way you want you can use the command Propulate to export a custom properties template and import it into an existing drawing. Propulate is not the most straightforward command so have some patience and pay attention to the command line.
