Birdy,

How do you transfer that Info in the drawing properties to other drawing files for the project?   I thought Drawing Properties was single file specific. 

BTW; Nice Architect Name  :wink:

I + XI = X is true ...  ... if you change your perspective.

I no longer CAD or Model, I just hang out here picking up the empties beer cans

Yes we use fields in attributes in Dynamic Blocks for Part Numbers based on a look-up table. When the part changes based on orientation, length, visibility state, etc... We can automatically update the attribute based on the look-up table link.


I'm using the X,Y fields too. I'm using them to fill in an informational sheet we have to file with the state.

Has anyone used any of the block information including attributes?

Sorry for the delay...
Birdy,

We dont.  Mostly that stuff does not change file to file.
Not saying it's the best way, but it does work pretty well for us.
To start a new file, (for same job) typically I just "save as" and delete all layouts cept one, and delete all MS stuff. Quick, easy, painless.
The other option is QNew, and fill out the titleblock again (na-thanks)  We've never xref'd Tblocks.  But I'm considering it.
