I solve this problem easily with XREF. We always put our title blocks in as XREF's for just this very reason. Any information that is common to ever sheet is included in the XREF title block. Any information that is specific to each sheet is only included in the actual drawing. I make one title block up to true plotted size, i.e., if the sheet is 24x36 I make a true size title block to that sheet size minus the margins. Then when I insert it I scale it up to the sheet size of the actual drawing, i.e., if it is 1/8 scale I scale the XREF 96 times. So, when somebody says I need to change the date, name, etc. of all the sheets, I go into the XREF sheet, change it once, and presto, all of the sheets are changes! Rich Lewis seaint(--nospam--at)seaint.org,Internet writes: Say you're fixing to send out a final set with 20 or 30 drawings and the architect calls and wants to change the date on the title block from 2-25-99 to 2-26-99. It's a pain to manually make this change. Previously, Mark Middlebrook and others have posted script and batch files to automate different tasks. One that comes to mind is a file to change all drawings in a particular subdirectory from r14 to r13. What I would like to be able to do is the following: 1. Have a script open a file. 2. select a particular block to edit the attributes (ddatte) 3. change value of a particular attribute 4. save changes 5. continue to next dwg file. The problems that I am running into is how to do you select the block with the attributes without manually picking it (the block will always be called 'tb') Then how do change a particular attribute at the command line. Any help would be wonderful. Thanks, John Jones, PE Pell City, AL
