1. When in style and Standard editor with default standard selected under Standard I am trying to display mass properties in my view label.
Select View Preferences tab. View type Base. Next to Display select Edit View Label.
When Format Text box pops up in the selection for text type I have two options.
a. Properties - Model
b. View Label Properties
2. Inside an IDW file right click on view and select edit view.
When Drawing View box pops up there is the option to access Edit View Label next to View Identifier.
When Format Text box pops up in the selection for text type at this point there are seven options.
a. Properties - Model
b. Properties - Drawing
c. Drawing Properties
d. Sheet Properties
e. Physical Properties - Model
f. View Label Properties
g. Sheet Metal Properties
Questions 1. Why are ther only two options in S&S Editor?
2. Can I add more options to S&S Editor?
I would like to add mass to my lablel inside certain templates and have it show when I display a views Base view label. Not ot have to maunually add it each time it is displayed.
options you want to add to label inside template do not work when there's no reference to model.
I logged wish item #1473931 to investigate posibilities of implementation.
Anything on this yet? Or someone else know how I can add MASS to automaticaly drop in when adding BASE view?
Thanks in advance.
A sketched symbol would make this easier-- you just insert the sketched symbol and there's your mass. Not automatic, but not too much work, either.
Edit: come to think of it, a little iLogic rule might be able to automate this for you. But don't ask me to write it-- I'm not that good with iLogic and I don't have time.

I have talked to my coleagues and have not came up with a solution here. I think a future release needs to update the uatomatic properties options.
I am not sure if this applies, but I have added mass to my title block for the first base view inserted into the drawing. It doesn't display until I press save as that is what triggers the rule to run.
I do not know much logic or programming, but I had some help, here is the post: good luck!
(in that link, i attached my title block, to help see the rule applied)
Why don't you add MASS parameter to iProperties. I guess you don't use all of them. If I were you, I will add MASS to "Cost Center" by type =<MASS> in the text box. Then you change the view label with "cost center" parameter.
