You need to ensure that the property set you are using for your tag, is the same one that you are using in your schedule. You can edit your schedule and add columns of any information you need. This will give you the same information on your schedule as your tag. You can also add info types to property sets, to extract any information you want, also from catalogue information, such as part dimensions. Is the property sets match, changing the information will update both the tag and the schedule.

Not really, I still type most of my commands in. 27 years old and some in the office consider me as 'old school'

IM 27 TOO AND I TYPE ALL MY COMMANDS AS WELL . I LOVE TO CUSTOMIZE THE CRAP OUT OF ACAD, BUT I FIND THE MORE I DO THE LESS OTHER PEOPLE CAN WORK AT MY STATION . SO I TRY TO KEEP IT TO A MIN AND JUST USE LISP / CUSTOM MACRO'S WHEN NO ONE'S LOOKING.(WORKS BEST FOR MC TEXT)
PS: DO YOU KNOW :D WHEN YOU USE PIPE COMMAND, WHERE IS COMPASS DISPLAYED? :huh:

when you first start drawing the pipe. hit c then enter. THat'll toggle your compass on or off. If thats what you meant. It's far too early for me at the moment.

I do a range of stuff, I work for a Building Srevices company, so do, Elec mech and Public Health. Cover the full range really. Didn't really have to do any convincing with anybody. My boss is all up for this kind of stuff and gives me time when available to explore.
