Each drawing type has an associated title block (electrical project configuration). This command lets you change this default.


The title block associated with the drawing can be changed via the drawing properties.


The title block selector allows you to select the new title block you wish to associate with a drawing.


Properties: Opens the Properties dialog box for the selected title block.

Preview: Opens the title block in a preview dialog box. The block cannot be modified in this view.

List mode: Displays a list of title blocks (name, description...).

Thumbnail mode: Displays title blocks as thumbnail previews.

Configuration: Manages the display settings for items in the dialog box.


This tab displays the title blocks classification in tree form.

The left part of the dialog shows the title block classifications. The right side shows the title blocks in the currently selected classification.

Display sub-class content: Check this box, and all the title blocks in the sub-class of the selected classification will be shown.


This tab lets you filter the title blocks list. All filter criteria are taken from the title block properties.

The right part of the dialog box displays the title blocks that correspond to the selected criteria.

Remove filter: Removes all filter criteria.


If this needs to be applied to all electrical project drawings or on a particular drawing type (Such as schematic or terminal strip drawings), it is best to apply the new title block at the electrical project configuration level. After changing the parameters for one drawing, you will be asked if this new title block should be applied to all drawings of the same type.
