I have set-up X&Y format cross referencing. However I would like the X&Y grid cross reference to be shown as an attribute on the drawing. Can someone please advise how to show this as an attribute on the drawing.


Thanks & regards.

I just have numbers as part of the title block along the top of the sheet (IEC).  In some cases I have it as a seperate block.

I have the numbers across the top of our title blocks as attributes which I can go in and change as needed. Along the bottom are fields that are tied to the top attributes so that they change automatically.


The sides are always the same so they are just text in the title block.


ACADE does not support automatic updates to these attributes according to the co-ordinate system you use, at this stage although it may be a wish list item.
