fields as attributes/sheet set title block/dont plot empty fields?

Recommended Posts

hi all

i have a title block with all the components (attributes) set as fields.

i would like to set the fields as attributes to the title block 'block' so it can be used as the template to start a drawing in my sheet set.

 

i have thus far:

1. the titleblock is a block in a dwg.

2. the dwg is (temporarily) a sheet in the sheet set i need it for (so i can give it sheet custom fields).

3. all the attributes for the titleblock are fields.

 

now im stuck.

 

what i would like to do is:

1. create a block comprising all these fields (the title block attributes) so they are in a new dwg when i add it as a sheet to the sheet set.

2. have it be able to be updated as per a regular title block so i can arrange their order, ie; define the fields as attributes in order.

3. have empty fields not print out with "----" when they are empty!!

 

i hope this is clear.

 

thanks very much for any help. :)

okay, breaking this down...

 

what input does a field need to have so that it doesnt plot out when it is empty?

What is plotting? Do you have an example?
