V6 Layout Wish


I think it would be useful to have the option to fill/edit fields, say title block, Notes, BOM, etc. within the Layout Properties panel. Perhaps having a few canned preferred/pre-made ones to choose from, which can then be directly input into/edited.

For instance, I was just hoping to drop the filename onto the layout pages, but have forgotten how the frick to do it!! I know I can type it directly, but I’d love to just click a box and get it - based on my preferred layout…

I don’t do a ton of dwgs, so perhaps it doesn’t make sense to those of you who do. I welcome any reasons not to do this.

Hi Ernest- in case it helps for now, start Text and click on ‘fX’ button on the dialog- choose Document Name from the list. As far as I can see right now, there is no good way to access this via a macro, but I’ll poke around some more.



Right - That’s where it is!

Helpful as usual. Thanks Pascal.
