Hi everybody

 

I have a small challenge.

 

I would like to implement a text in my drawing template which has a fixed position.

Lets say 40 mm in X and -40 mm in Y away from the right bottom corner of the drawing.

 

Because right know my text is "fixed" or better said positioned dependend on the 0,0 point (assuming bottom left of the drawing). But my title block is always on the bottom right.

 

Does anybody have an idea?

Create a one cell (or whatever) tabular note.  Put the text in the cell.

hide all the border lines of the tabular note/cell

Convert the tabular note to a titleblock object

 

I don't think the tabular note "bottom right" corner needs to be aligned to the drawing border lines, but if it doesn't move correctly as you resize the drawing, you may need to make the cell "big" so the bottom-right corner of the tabular note aligns to the drawing border curves.

you can also place a note with the orgin tool "offset character"

 

This allows you to select your titleblock and link the note to that with a offset.

So if you resize your sheet to an new size the text will relocated with the titleblock.
