Created a drawing template and when I saved the drawing to a .drwdot all my words disappeared on the template. anyone know why?
Were they just text blocks or references to variables?
Are you writing your information to your 'sheet format' or just on the drawing itself?
Shaun - Some of both I have text box illustrating what each cell Is reference, but I also do have some variable that are linked to properties.
Jamie - I am writing all the information on the 'sheet format'
If these are variables, and your referenced part is not in the drawing / no custom properties are assigned, they will appear blank. The static text disappearing leads me to believe you have things hidden. Are you able to attach the template?
check the Sheetformat, are the Notes still there?
Any Variable linked to the Drawing will show empty until a Value is put in.
hoovering over the Note will give you the Description.
Could you do this,
Right click the sheet and Edit Sheet and take a snap shot of the same view and upload it
Jamie - Not sure how to get the drawing attached. all I can do is attached a picture.
John - here is the image
The weird part about this is when I save the template format as .slddrt
I get all the words and the linked variables.
Are you sure that you open the same template which you saved before ? I mean in the same folder ???
Can you post the screen shot of tools>options> file location here
Can you post your template here?
