Sheet attributes

I know that Electrical has many hidden features, but they are often very difficult to get to.
I create a drawing template using. Wdt file. This issue is about drawing attributes not the project. Can I set them equality?
For example:
CAD `# =  DWGSUB
DWG `# = DWGNAM
But I need: CAD `# = DWG` # = DWGNAM


I just need 2 times indicate DWG `# in one block, and this is impossible, so I use CAD` #, the value which is equal to the DWG `#. And I couldnt set its value two times (not so lazy but users ask).

Since the attributes are different names it shouldn't be a problem at all. Just manually modify the .wdt file or WD_TB attribute.

 

The attribute method would look like this…

DWG`# = DWGNAM;CAD`# = DWGNAM

 

The .wdt method would look like this…

DWG`# = DWGNAM

CAD`# = DWGNAM
