editing title blocks

Recommended Posts

SRN

Some sheets provided by our customer have model sheets and layout sheets. The model sheet contains most of the drawing but the layout sheet adds the title block. However this results in an inability to edit the attributes of the title block or sometimes you can edit the attributes initially but if you change anything else on the layout page where they have sometimes inserted a table that isn't in model view THEN the title block becomes uneditable.

 

any thoughts how to fix this?

 

really appreciate this forum and the knowledge and expertise everyone provides.

What program did the client use to create the drawings?

 

Without a copy of a drawing to test it would be difficult to ascertain the true nature of the problem and arrive at a workable solution.

I think, like ReMark, that they have probably been produced in something other than Autocad.

 

Last time I saw this it was because the Autocad templates had been used in Revit then saved as Autocad .dwgs, (by one of our sister divisions who only used Revit).

The finished drawings had to be Autocad because the end customer specified that.

 

When we later tried to edit these drawings in Autocad we too had a problem with block attributes being uneditable.

Luckily we had the original titleblock tempates as native Autocad so were able to swap them out fairly easily.

 

You could ask your customer what CAD they are using, and if they have their titleblocks as native Autocad

Or you could recreate the titleblocks as native Autocad youselves. (Don't know what your customer would think of this though).

It is possible that they were created in AutoCAD 2007 although the customer now uses 2014. if you hover over the file under the application menu is says it is version 2013 but then we have been editing it using 2015 LT until now so the file type would be 2013.
