Is there any way to edit the title block information after creating a plan set drawing?

Title Blocks

Hey Jerry. Your question is a bit vague. What information is on the tile block and what information do you want to change. How are your title blocks and pages set up?

I can show you how I have mine set up.

I have borders that I created and placed in the Title Block folder. On this border I have information which remains constant and information which changes from plan to plan. I use Information Stamps to place the varying information and I enter this information in the Project Information dialog. Since, unfortunately, you cannot define custom project information fields and/or stamps I reuse some of the fields to contain the information I actually need.

I think you answered my

I think you answered my question accidentally. I wanted to add my own information after entering the border into the plan set because SP doesn't have a way of creating custom stamps (now that I know what they are called). I will use some of the internal stamp locations to enter in the info that I'd like to have.

One more thing Bill. I noticed that you have sq. ft. info entered in your title block which is something that I need to do also. At what point are you adding that to the plan set sheet?

Areas

I didn't notice your question about sq. ft. The way I handle it is that I have a drawing in each project named Area. For each project I edit the Area drawing and enter the appropriate sq. ft. amounts. The Area drawing is inserted into the Plan Set page just like any other drawing. I had to do this for every drawing page but after it is set up one time I just reuse the same setup over and over.

I know there is a tutorial or post somewhere on the site  telling up how to get a full list of @stamps. Can someone point me to it please.

Thank you,
