Linking Sketch Text to File Properties

You can link sketch text to file properties using those properties to display sketch text values in the sketch and to create configurations in design tables.

In the Sketch Text PropertyManager, click Link to Property and then select the property in the Link to Property dialog box.

After you link the sketch text to the property, the property reference appears under Text in the Sketch Text PropertyManager.

If the file properties or their values are not yet specified, you can click File Properties in the Link to Property dialog box to specify values for existing file properties such as Author, Title, and Subject, or to create custom and configuration-specific properties and values.
