Sketch text parameters inventor 2012

I have several name plates which are embossed, and only the description changes from job to job, but find it a nuisance having to go into the part,edit sketch then edit text! each time I want to change the description .

I was initially going to get round this by creating a form and linking it to the text parameter!  But for some reason it won't take in the text parameter I created and will only find and take in numerical parameters?

 Is there any way around this? Or am I doing something wrong?, I know it is possible in inventor 2013.

I am currently working with Inventor professional 2012 Any help would be greatly apprieciated.:smileyhappy:

Hi F leagle8t,


Mark Randa has written some ilogic to do help with this. You can find a link and an example file here:


As you mentioned Inventor 2013 will do this without the need for iLogic.


I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
