In this video, Smithy demonstrates how you can modify the default title block with note fields linked to custom document properties/metadata and how to retain the custom document properties for other projects. This may be useful to business users who require company information shown on technical drawings and have multiple sheets with common project data (material, job number, etc.).
Note: DesignSpark Mechanical Version 5.0 (Build 7232) is used throughout this demo. You will need either the paid Drawing add-on or Bundle to follow this tutorial and implement the steps. More information about add-ons can be found here.
