    I have a question, I have been using AutoCad Products since 1996, I was certified Level 1. Since then AutoCAD has changed drastically, presently I am using 2008. A lot of the features are not applicable at my present employer. However, I am dealing with large volume say 800 per submission. My biggest complaint is having to change the revision date, and preliminary to original status. Is there a way to change dates globally in a sheet set???? Is there a way to design my title block to be more efficient. Would I be better to make my titleblock with attributes. What is the function of fields??

  3. Hey Vicki,
    Usually this is done by making the Titleblock and XREF. That way you only need to update it once. I usually put all data that applies to all sheets on the XREF and then make a block with attributes for the data that varies between sheets. Fields work great for data to automatically update. I make the call out for the scale of the viewport a field to make sure it’s always correct.
    Let me know if any of this helps.
