          Ping,

          While you can have different sheet formats between sheets 1 and 2 and so on,

          if you have custom properties and add note links to them on your format templates

          they should fill in automatically.

              The best way to do this is setting up a sheet template with a text field in the "name" box, then writiing in the text field a variable name

              $PRPSHEET:"SW-Title"

               

              When you create your multi sheet drawing, the drawing name displayed will be linked with the "title" property of the model used to generate the drawing (the one you specify under files/property/title.

                  Another good way is to create a custom property in the sheet (let's call it NAME), then adding in the drawing template

                  $PRP:"NAME"

                   

                  You can use both methods, too: if you write in the sheet template

                  $PRP:"NAME"

                  $PRPSHEET:"SW-Title"

                   

                  you could automatically generate titles like

                  (first line stated in sheet properties) ASSEMBLY PROCESS FOR

                  (second line from model properties) REALLY COOL PART

                   

                  that may change in

                  (first line stated in new sheet properties, different from the other one) OVERVIEW DRAWING OF

                  (second line from model properties, still linked to the same model)    REALLY COOL PART

                   

                  That way if you want to modify the sheet name or part name, it will be really a 2-click matter.

                Each sheet in the tree uses a properties set that you can set. Assuming your part files all have their own details you will need to access "Properties" from the drop down on a right click on the "Sheet #" in the tree.  You will note that at the bottom left of the window that comes up states, " use custom properties from model shown in ", is a drop down. Select the view number that has the correct properties. A rebuild may be needed to update them but it should work.
