  1. How can I add leading Zeros to the CurrentSheetNumber Field? I know that the code for this field is: %% . How can I modify this code so that the CurrentSheetNumber is displayed in the form 0001 instead of just 1? Thank you.
  2. Is there any way to pull text from a spreadsheet into arc-aligned text? Like if I were trying to make round inspection tags but didn't want to type in the inspection code each time, or if I needed to change something? Is it possible to put a field into the text to refer to a cell location in Excel? About me: I just started using AutoCAD 2011 (I was previously using AutoCAD 2005) and am having a hard time finding my old controls while learning all the new features for which I got the program. Please use small words.
  3. Hi, Recently I've gotten into this type of problem. Have an ATT "A" that is set. I can change it and it will change. But I also have an ATT "B" which works the same way as the "A". I've added a MTXT into the block so that both ATT's A and B will work together, meaning they will always be in a dead center - something like text (no matter what the string is, you can Align it Middle Center), using a FIELDS option, and parameter set to VALUE. It works when placed into the drawing, but need something that once I place the block and want to edit the VALUE, the Fields will update/sync. I'm asking for some guidance from you guys. Thank you in advance for the help. Vee A and B.dwg
  4. I have a block that has MText in it. I need it to refrence the sheet set manager "CurrentSheetTitle" sometimes the title can be long, so i am using mtext so it will wrap correctly. when i insert the block other attribut fields display properly, but the mtext for this field does not. after i explode the block, then the MText field displays properly. i have another MText field that reads plot time and user name. that is contained in the same block and updated perfectly. any ideas on this or any way to make it better.

    Object Data Table Fields

    I am building a Object Data Tables and want to limit the input options into the fields. Specifically, I am looking for any way to limit human error/creativity while inserting values in ODT fields. For example: The ODT has a field titled Color. I want to limit the input options to blue, red or green for that field. Not yellow or purple or any other word. Ideally, I would like a pull-down menu, with the 3 color options, for the field value when I attach the OD to an object. Can pull down menus be used in the field value blank? Any ideas?
  6. I have figured out how to link my room names that are on multiple layers (ceiling, 1/8" scale, 1/4" scale, signage, etc.), but I am wondering does anyone know if I can link them outside the current drawing. I would like for when I update my room name and number for them to automatically update in Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing sheets. Like I said all architectural are linked so that when I update one the others follow, but currently the other disciplines just copy and paste my names into their sheets which has been fine, but I think it is less risky for them to automatically update. I am considering creating additional layers in my background for the other disciplines but am kind of leary about giving them access to the backgrounds. Any suggestions would be appreciated.Thanks Room Names.dwg
  7. Hello! I'm trying to find an intelligent way to reorganize the custom properties in my sheet set. Some are poorly named, others I suspect aren't even used. As far as I can tell, you can't rename a custom property; you have to create a new one, transfer the definitions throughout the sheet set one by one, and then delete the original. Isn't there a better way? P.S. I'm referring specifically to the sheet set custom properties, found by right-clicking the sheet set in SSM and going to properties. They're closely related to fields.
  8. Hi all, I'm new to the site. I'm setting out attribute block on a plan and would like to extract the world coordinates of the insertion of the block in to a cad table in the same drawing. Please help, thanks AW
