Dynamic Title Block Revision Box
« on: March 15, 2016, 07:47:27 am »
I thought I must share.

I have been thinking of  incorporating multiline attributes in a revision block, where the size of the frame around the text can easily be adjusted and that the attributes would stay in the center.

I came up with the attached, but the help came from this: http://www.cad-notes.com/how-to-keep-attributes-at-dynamic-block-center/.

Design is something you should do with both hands. My 2d hand , my 3d hand ..

Would time have been better spent simply using an AutoCAD table? The only difference is that you are editing the cell contents within the properties window vs within the individual cells.

Maybe yes, but it's part of a title block.
