Title Blocks

AC 2012, Win 7 64 Bit


I sent up this template a while ago, and for the life of me, I can't remember how I setup the text in the title block.


I had it set so some text would only have to be changed on the first sheet, and the remainder would automatically populate on a regen.


Anyone care to take a look and figure out what I did. When I tried to duplicate it, in the field dialog box I can't seem to find out how I got the block reference. Field category=Objects, Field names=Object, Object Type=Block reference.


Or for that matter, provide a better way of doing this. Keep in mind, we use full and Lt AC.

I see what you've done, used blocks for each item in the title block you want to change globally and using an attribute with a field for each.

I'd recommend using a sheet set - it works on the same principle you are using. 

Look in C;/Program Files/Autocad . . . . and there should be a sample folder in there with SS examples.

Hope this helps.

Go to File~pull down select Drawing properties, under the custom tab you may find what you are looking for.


Good luck.
