Disappearing Drawing Properties

Disappearing Drawing Properties version 2010

Autocad P&ID  provides  5 general drawing properties  (DWG Number, DWG Title, Drawing Area, Author and Description) and allows you to create custom drawing properties  such as Drawn By , Checked By etc. These can all be very useful.

Our experience , however, is showing that if we delink and relink drawings, all the filled in values are disappearing except for the DWG Number and DWG Title.

This is not very helpful. How can we prevent this data loss?

Things are tough when you have to amswer your own post !


The bad news is this seems to be one big fat "BUG" in 2010.


The good news is it seems to be fixed in 2011
