Project Properties

Project Properties

The Project Properties screen is where you can enter in various information about the project that can be used later in the drawing title block or in reports.  Some of the fields will allow you type in information, while others will allow you to select the ellipse button and select a value from a list.

Property List

The table below lists the default property names and the corresponding title block that property updates in the AutoCAD drawing, along with the database field it will populate.  If you are creating a custom title block in your AutoCAD drawing and want to use one of these properties to populate the title block you must use the exact name listed in the Title Block Attritube Name column.
