Don't you use Custom Property Tab Builder?? If you do then it would be easy to setup Radio Buttons to quickly change the name, probably a lot quicker then running a macro..
I have not used the property tab builder. Thought about digging into it but never find the time.
Mike Flanders - The reason you don't have time is because you don't use Custom Property Tab Builder, lol Please find time because once you use CPTB you'll have more time per project... There are plenty guys here that would be more than happy to help you get it set up, in fact I have a SW Dropbox page with a lot of information including CPTB files, then you can see how it's setup.
Mike that is awesome when you get it worked out,. I have built the base one, and from there I have pre filled out about 40% of the stuff that should be standard on the title blocks. Loads of fun, and a great time saver.
DAVID, when this is created can it go back and look at what you created for older drawings/models? That would be awesome if I could create this template and have it go back and change everything every file I have.
let me know when you figure that one out.
this day on is the only way I was ever able to change templates with out manually updating each one as needed when I revised older prints.
I’ve noticed that the ‘Open’ dialog box has the same ‘Last
Saved By’ info on the folder pop-up as in the display on the ‘Summary’ tab. The
‘File Explorer’ info can be changed in the registry. Perhaps someone can make
it appear on the ‘Summary’ tab. I copied this a while ago, so things may have
