Hello!

 

I work on a lot of drawing sets and want to be able to pull a part into a drawing and have its properties show up in the title block in the sheet format. I am aware i can change the view that the sheet properties point to on a sheet by sheet basis but i find it a bit cumbersome to do this for each page every time i make a drawing. i'm open to writing a macro to do this but i cant find anything that lets me modify that parameter. Seems like instance.SetProperties doesn't really give you access to the full list of parameters in sheet properties. I've been scouring the internet for hours without success. If anyone has any leads i would really appreciate the input.
