How do I add a global variable to my schematic?

As the topic says. I want to add a global variables named DRAWING_NAME. How is that done?

Hi @infinite.machinery,

I hope you're doing well. The dialog for this functionality has not come into Fusion 360 yet. In the meantime, I'm pretty sure the command line syntax will still work.

ATTRIBUTE * nameofattribute 'valueofattribute'

The * is very important that's what makes the attribute global.

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

Best Regards,

This won't work if I try to use ATTRIBUTE * nameofattribute 'valueofattribute' in library device. It will say that invalid character in attribute name referencing * character.


In schematic sheet it won't give any error but there is no way of accessing that attribute if that was even created.

Hi @infinite.machinery 

I hope you are doing well!
We support Document Attribute in Fusion 360 V2.0.13615.

Please have a try to see if it works well for you.
