Drawing Template Callout Codes for Document Properties

Question asked by Eric Skare on Feb 23, 2015

I am creating drawing templates that automatically reference pieces of information from part files into the title block.


For example, I have the codes to automatically fill in the part material selected on the part file onto the drawing with the following callouts:


In the part file template custom properties window:     "SW-Material", "SW-CreatedDate"


In the drawing template custom properties window:     $PRPSHEET:"Material", $PRPSHEET:"DrawnBy", $PRPSHEET:"SW-File Name"


I can enter the DrawnBy name into the part file custom properties window manually, but I was wondering if there was a way to automatically take the name of whoever logs into the computer and insert it into the part file drawn properties window.


Also I am looking for callout codes for surface appearance as selected in the part file material, part file special process, comments, drawing revisions, etc.


I have scoured through google to find some of these codes. I am wondering if there is some list of these codes that I can find and any other support that may assist met with my drawing templates.
