View Full Version : "User defined attribute list" won't save settings
18th Mar 2009, 03:00 pm
I am trying to add the ASSYCODE attribute to the automatically generated reports. I am doing this via adding the attribute to the "user defined attribute list" option. When you add the attribute it asks you to save the .wda file. I do this, but when I open the user defined attribute list again it is blank. I try to open the .wda file I made earlier, then save the drawing but it still goes away the moment I close the window.
Has anyone else experienced this?
Thanks for looking!

Ok, I figured it out. For some reason AutoCAD won't allow you to use the ASSYCODE attribute (or probably any of the catalog data attribs) in the "user defined attribute list".
I switched to an attribute I made up and it worked great. I ended up using the DESC3 attribute, which also worked fine. I needed to use an attribute that all of AutoCAD's "smart" blocks had.
Just FYI for anyone else who has this problem.
