CADsys-Set Scale/Unit in Drawing Signature

Win64, English

CADsys GmbH
The application inserts the scale of main view and/or the length unit used into the drawing title block field of each sheet before saving a drawing. After changes the drawing will be updated.

General Usage Instructions

To enable the functionality, it is necessary that the user creates a user defined iProperty of type "text" with an empty value in the drawing template file (eg Norm.idw) for the scale and/or for the unit.

This empty value of the iProperty must be inserted once in the template file by the user on this position, where the scale or the unit has to be inserted/edited into the drawings title block automatically by saving the drawing later.

The format of the placeholder will be used for the generated scale text and/or the generated unit text too.
