Title Mark used in Project - Want to Change

140 Views, 3 Replies

I'm trying to change the title mark that is being used by PN to a custom one that I created. I can't seem to find where it is calling out which one to use? I've found the drawing it's using as well as the title mark. I was able to rename the blocks so that the OOTB name was the custom one I built. This works fine, but I want to change PN to point to the title mark I made with it's own name. This would help with other callouts as well.

Thanks!

You can edit the Callouts that are provided by editing the
Callouts(Imperial).dwg file on your system. To find where this file is
saved on your system, right click on the call out you want to have the text
sizes fixed for and Select Properties. The location is specified under
Title mark location. Go to the location specified and open the Callouts
(Imperial).dwg file. Click on the block attributes you want to edit, Right
Click and select Edit Block in Place. You can then edit the properties of
the attributes in the title mark and set the correct text style that you
would like to have fixed. I recommend that you create your office standard
text style in the Callouts (Imperial).dwg file before editing the block in
place. When finished save the file and close the drawing.

Next you need to check to make sure that the tool is set correctly in the
tool palette. Right click on the tool in the tool palette that you just
modified and Select properties. Under Attribute Text Style select the drop
down box and pick Content. This will set the tool to the content in the
file and not the drawing you are inserting it into.

Thanks for the reply George, but I've done all of that already...including making a custom dwg. What I'm looking to do is have the Project Navigator point to that custom drawing so I can use a custom title mark when I make a View. I can not find where the PN is calling out to use the OOTB title mark when creating a view.

Well, I didn't find the answer I was looking for, but I was able to produce what I need. I copied the custom title mark into the template and renamed the blocks to the same name as the OOTB blocks used for the title mark. This way when a View is created, it uses the template block definition.
