Is it possible to add a check box feature to my drawing templates?
Any ideas would be appreciated,
Welcome to SW forums Nick
Can you explain the requirements for the check box requirements as there is no option to that or may be I don't understand the need.

Basically we would like to add a check box list that will convey secondary manufacturing processes to the part. I would like it to be integrated into the drawing templates or even the title block would be best. Here is an example, using a bullet list, but imagine the bullets as check boxes.
This extra information would be on prototype drawings and would go into our quoting system.
I know I can put check boxes in and excel spreadsheet, can I integrate a spreadsheet into a drawing template?
I would suggest looking into the property tab builder because these can be check boxes inside of there.
Then these can feed custom property values that can be on your drawings.
Do you actually want this to show up in the drawing itself, like somewhere in the title block or the notes?
Welcome to the forum.
If you are talking about what you can do in MS word or Excel, No.
There is check box capabilities in the tab builder, but that is not what you are
talking about I think.
What application are you trying to do?
The Property Tab Builder would be perfect for that.
I second Kelvin's suggestion
Thanks to everyone for their input. Many great ideas, but for me the simplest solution should do the trick. I'm drew the squares and text and having the designers use the hatch/fill to show the "checked option". The text is on the sheet level, while the boxes are on the drawing itself. Should do the trick, Thanks again to all.
I'd like to revive this question with some extra info:
I have a table for finishes on my sheet template linked to custom properties of a part. I've used the checkbox item in the Property Tab Builder to indicate whether a process is to occur on a specific part or not. Linking to the sheet, the results are the text reading either "Checked" or "Unchecked". Is there any way to translate this into a "Y" or "N" when the properties are loaded into my sheet? I have a feeling using the "Radio" control attribute is more like what Mr. Riva are looking for?
