Title Block linking

I am working on setting up my company's new SE drawing templates and I was wanting to know the best way to link info from the model to the title block. (like: scale, sheet neumber, and drawing number). I feel like im close, but Im missing something. I have been trying to use the callout properties dialog box, but with little. luck.

Annotation call out is where it's at.

 

It takes a while to get used to and how it works, but it's worth it.

Some issues really take some thinking. Like naming files what they are going to be labled, etc...

Re: Title Block linking

So what am I doing wrong? Because my stuff isn't linking up properly.

Re: Title Block linking

I don't have the time to download, open, and figure out from your file right
now.



The typical issues are, what is being referenced.



Here are the annotations I use in a tile block

%{Sheet name}

%{Sheet number} OF %{Number of Sheets}

%{Document Number}

%{Project}

%{Title}

%{Origination Date/@MM/dd/yy}

%{Accessed|R1}

%{File Name (full path)|R1}

%{Sheet scale}



Most of this data needs to be filled into each model and or assembly for the
data to show up.

Re: Title Block linking

Thank you. Where did you find those? I could find those in the callout properties box.

Re: Title Block linking

These are all structured text strings available in the "Callout Properties" dialogue.....look for the "Property Text" button.....

Re: Title Block linking

I have a very related question. I posted my Title block annotation previusly in this thread.

 

Apperantly I made a poor choice for the two different dates.

 

I want one date for origional creation and another for when the file is updated. note that I'm not using any revision tracking for other reasons.

 

Whats the right choices for that result.
