Add a grip point to the Rev Blcok

Folks, I know you can add a connection grip point to newly created sketch symbols, but how do you add it to the existing Rev Block from Inventor right out of the box? You can't edit the definition of the Rev Block, I'm stumped. I need to do this so my Rev Block is attached to the titleblock top right corner so when changing border sizes, it follows the top right corner.

thanks,
Neil

The revision table feature should allow you to 'snap' to any corner of the drawing border. The feature is a table like the parts list and not a sketch symbol. If the sheet size of the page is modified, the table will need to be repositioned. It should 'snap' easily while dragging the table into position.

 

You may create a revision table by manual sketching a custom sketch symbol with user prompted text entries; however the connection grip will not maintain the snap to a corner of the border when the sheet size is modified. Is dragging a table into position a deal breaker? 

 

Thanks,

Firstly, thank you for the response. Having to drag the rev block to its new position after changing sheet sizes is not a big deal really, I just wanted it to stay connected to the top right corner much like the title block maintaince itself to the bottom right corner when changing sheet sizes. I now understand that the title block is a "sketched symbol" per say....
