    Part Properties Populate Titleblock?

    Mike Thomas

      I've been through this forum and found lots of discussion around titleblocks and getting part property information to populate certain fields, I just can't get it to work. Here's what I'm doing....

       

      I create a part and set the desired BOM description and part#, as well as create a new property for StockNo

      I then create a new drawing and place a view of the part. I edit the Sheet Format and insert a Note. I select Link to Property but none of the properties appear in the list

      So as a test I select Configuration Name

      And thats what appears, even when I exit editing the sheet format

       

      So my questions...

      1. How do I select the configuration description and part# to use in my titleblock?
      2. How come my custom properties are not appearing to be selected for insertion
      3. Why when I link to a part property do I only get the name of the property and not the actual value?

       

      Hopefully this makes sense, any suggestions is greatly appreciated
