Text User Parameter

Status: New Idea

Why cant we export text user parameter ???

we can for numerical type...what is the issue for text type!!

 

it would help us tremendously ,

by exporting text parameter, we can write whatever and be able to derive it for other parts.

 

 

please please....make this happen..

You can do this now with iLogic code, but I agree that it should have standard user availability.

Akosi, this is how I do it right now.  If you have more than one parameter, change the identifer in the code.  I use this all the time for Titleblock automation where a Custom Parameter is needed from a MultiValue Text Parameter in the Parameters box.

I dont want my text parameter to go to custom properties. Id like to derive the text parameter with the solid.

is there anyway i can attached any text (ex. description) to a derived solid?
