Use this type of custom information in the followings ways:

  • Apply in a Bill of Materials
  • Add associative dimensions in parts that dynamically update in a Bill of Materials
  • Use as advanced selection criteria for managing assembly configurations
  • Integrate with drawing sheet formats and link notes to document properties
  • Add system-defined, configuration-specific mass properties

Entering or Displaying Summary Information

To enter or display summary information:

  1. Click File > Properties.
  2. In the dialog box, on the Summary tab, type the appropriate information in the boxes provided for: Author, Keywords, Comments, Title, and Subject.

    The system provides read-only Statistics about the document’s creation date, the date last saved, and the name of the person who saved the document last.

    If you insert a part identification number in the Title box, you can use that number automatically when you create a bill of materials in an assembly drawing that contains that part.
