can the file name and location be printed on the drawing automatically?
Insert a note on the drawing.
Then use "link property"
can i put the note in my template so that the file name and path will be added when i make a new drawing ?
You mean add the info to the title block so it automatically shows up when the drawing is made?
Create a new drawing, use your template. Right-click --> Edit Sheet Format. In the middle of the box there should be a blue box that shows up, click that and then you can link like described above. When done, right-click --> Edit Sheet, save as template.
im not seeing the blue box
Scott open your blank standard drawing template that you use. Place the notes with the linked property where you desire them to be. Then save that drawing as a new template and overwrite your previous one.
ok, i did that but i save the drawing, then i have to click edit sheet format again and the note/link appears, then when i ok out of edit sheet format the note/link will be shown. im not sure why this happens, perhaps i need to do something else to the link.
