Property Text...where's the button?


I'm trying to build a template to use for files and would like to just modify the
properties of the file and have the proper values show up in the title block.
I've read in the help files that I can insert "Property Text" but can not see the
associated button anywhere! I've gone into the customize menu for the toolbars
and looked everywhere... Where is this toolbar?
I see the advantages of SE2d over Autocad but I've got some old AutoCAD guru's to
convince that we're better off going with a new software instead of sitting around
on our ancient autocad programs.

You can right click over the text and choose properties to modify the properties.
Or you can go to format/styles and from the dialog box choose text from the pulldown
menu then click the modify button to set defaults. Hope this helps

Kristofor,
Property text is inserted into the Draft file with a Callout. The callout command
is on the flyout of the Leader command. Click on the little down arrow to the right
of the leader command button and you will be presented a list of commands. Callout
is at the bottom of the list. Click on the callout command. On the Callout Properties
dialog box, click on the Property text button in the bottom left hand corner of
the dialog.
There are some good help topics for property text. With Solid Edge 2D Drafting help
up, Click on the Search tab. Key in property text in the search field and click
on 'List Topics'. You should see a topic called 'Create Property Text'. You can
also do a search for 'Property text'in the Index tab.
