Help- Title block does not appear when inserting


Recommended Posts

Hi, 

 

I would really appreciate any help on this topic. It is the final stage in a long project so I am at my wits end. I have followed several youTube videos but it is the same result each time. 

 

I have created a title block for an A4 page. I am then trying to insert it into layout 1 of another drawing. All of the correct options have been selected but then when I go to specify the point, there is not title block. 

 

I am really confused! 

 

Thanks in advance, 

Aoife

There are several possibilities. Make sure the layer(s) that the block will go on is unlocked and thawed. Check the system variable INSBASE, which specifies where the block will go. If the block is annotative, make the scale current. Make sure you're in model space and not paper space. Use Zoom Extents and see if the block is somewhere in the distance.

 

Remember, if you insert a block or drawing, it's there somewhere, even if you can't see it. You then have to understand why you can't see it.

How exactly are you inserting the block? you mention trying to insert it into another drawing, has the drawing with the block been saved first, otherwise AutoCAD won't be able to find the block to use in a second drawing.

Is this a small title block or a full drawing border?

 

If it's a full border then as you are trying to get the template into a layout then this may be of help.

It's getting a bit old now but should set you on the path to doing what you want to do.

 

Basically you put the border/template (.dwt) into your layout and then use a window on the layout to see what is in modelspace.

Basically you open the border/template/titleblock (.dwt) in your layout and then use a window on the layout to see what is in modelspace.
