In my drawing template, I went into Document Settings and enabled "copy model iproperties" so my "Title" from my .iam to my document. That way, I set my drawing title in the assembly, and have my drawing reflect the same title from it's own iProperties.
The problem is, the copy operation doesn't seem to take by default. I can do into document settings on a new drawing and see everything is checked, but no properties have been copied. Only when I uncheck the box then recheck it does it copy the properties. Is this a bug? Thanks,
What version of Inventor, including service packs and updates?
I think I figured out that if the model iProperties were EMPTY when I created the drawing, I have to manually go and uncheck and recheck the option in the drawing. If I populate the model iProperties and THEN create the drawing, everything works as it should. I can handle that.
To make it idiot proof though for everyone else, is there a way, via iLogic, to sort of "re-initiate" that option and trigger it on save so it'll grab the properties again?
Just pointing this out.. but if this is to fill out the titleblock there is NO need to use the copy model properties functionality.. You can simply have the titeblock look at the iproperties of the part or assy placed in the base view
None of my idw file iprops have any of that information in them..and the titleblock just pulls the description and part number from the ipt/iam files iprops.
