When I go and edit the Field Text of a title block I have in a drawing and it opens the Edit Property Fields dialog box, the Value column width is always squished down and I always have to slide it over to make it wider to be able to see what I'm typing. Is there some way to change the default width and make it wider so that I don't have to perform this annoying task over and over again? It does it every time I open up the Edit Property Fields box in a drawing. This is driving me insane.
Can you post some images? When I edit my title block through edit definition I am not seeing what you are describing in the edit format text editor.
Why not just set those fields to draw from the iProperties of the part / assembly / drawing? If you do that you can avoid the edit field text dialogue entirely, and you can really automate a lot of your drawing data.
No way that I know of to set that default width. Go to the Inventor IdeaStation to submit this to Autodesk as an enhancement request.
