Configuration-Specific Properties in Title Block Tables

When a part or assembly has multiple configurations, the title block table can display the property values of the active configuration.
If configuration-specific properties are not defined but custom properties are, the custom properties are displayed.

To link configuration-specific properties to title block table cells:

  1. Add a title block table to a part or assembly with multiple configurations.
  2. Double-click a cell you want to link to a configuration-specific property.
  3. Click Link to Property (Note Formatting toolbar).
  4. In the Link to Property dialog box, click Current document.
  5. Select the property to link to from the drop-down list.

    If the list does not contain the property you want, click File Properties and on the Configuration Specific tab, add a property.

  6. Click OK.

    The value is added to the cell.

  7. Repeat steps 2 through 6 to link configuration-specific values to other cells.
  8. In the ConfigurationManager, change to another configuration and repeat the procedure to add and link to property values that are specific to that configuration.
