I wonder if this is possible.
In my title block I have a attribute with the name project_Number. Now what I want to do is the following. When I edit my block with the project number. The project number should automatically be added to a text box without me typing in the project number twice.
E.g.. This Drawing is part of the consulting services provided for Project[Project_Number] and may not be used or applied for any other purpose without prior consultation.
in other word the project number should be reference in the text box from the attribute. Is this possible???
Solved! Go to Solution.
it would be much simpler in the long run for both locations to use a field pointing to either a value in DWGPROPS (less ideal) or a ProjectNumber in Sheet Set Manager (ideal).
the sheetset manager works perfect. but our company don't use the sheet set manager. i'll try to convience them by doing so but in the meantime im trying to explore other ideas.
autodesk was able to give me a solution that works perfect
You can insert Attribute as a field in Mtext object.
1. Create an attribute
2. Start the Mtext command > while Mtext is still active, click on Field in Ribbon Insert panel
3. Field dialog > under Field names: select "Object" > at Object type: click the Select Object button and select the attribute > under Property select "Prompt" > OK to close Field dialog.
Result: Attribute is inserted as a field in Mtext.
I am doing this in AutoCAD Mechanical 2012... This how I am doing it:
1. Creating an attribute on a layer that does not plot.
2. In my MTEXT, right clicking and selecting "Insert Field" from drop down menu.
3. Under "Field names:" select "Object"
4. For "Object Type" I am picking the attribute.
5. Under "Property:" I am selecting "Value"
The default value should show up in the "Preview" column.
6. Then just hit "OK"
