Hi ravencontrols,

 

You can use ilogic to do this. Here are a couple of links to look at. There is an example file in the first link:

I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,

Hi ravencontrols,

 

See this link for the basics of creating an iLogic rule that triggers on an event (such as a Save or Open file event):

http://inventortrenches.blogspot.com/2012/01/creating-basic-ilogic-rule-with-event.html

 

Paul Munford covers more details on this here, including creating an external rule (one that is not stored in a particular file):

http://www.augi.com/library/playing-by-the-ilogic-rules

 

And here is another reference in case it helps:

I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
Curtis
