    Type command DWGPROPS. These settings can be shown on screen with fields.

    Like Aftertouch said you can add custom variables and values in DWGPROPS. The Express Tools command PROPULATE alows you to quickly load a complete set of property variables and values saved in a prp file. It's used by lots of CAD people and there's a bit of lisp written for modifying them as well.
    Layer 0 for ByBlock Block entities, everything else ByLayer. So many issues can be solved with good templates.

    ok now i set new dwgprop named DN and equal to 11

    when i use it in diesel expression like this

    $(substr,$(getvar,dwgname),1, %<\AcVar CustomDP.DN>%)

    it works fine but when i save and close then open my file again i find that the diesel expression turned into


    $(substr,$(getvar,dwgname),1, 11)

    so if i changed my DN variable again, diesel expression will never be changed automatically
