Hi, I have created my own custom title block. It has a field where the file name is, this field contains a file stamp that gets its information from the actual file name. When I insert this title block on a new drawing in my project, the file name field is correct filled. But if i change the file name and open the file do the old file name still appear in the "file name" field. The other day i discovered that if I mark a title block and then uncheck the "This title block is active" box and the check it again, the file name stamp is updating on all drawings. BUT is it possible to force this field to automatic update the file name, if there has been a file name update? I work in a quite big department, and I am afraid that not everyone remember to do the "uncheck and check" thing.
Has anyone else noticed that the Data Stamp still doesn't work in the newest version, VW2017? Specifically, the file name does not update automatically nor will it update by "refreshing" in the info palette. The date updates using the info palette, but the file name will not change. The same workaround as we previous versions is required: delete the existing stamp and replace it with a new one every time you update your file. Is this just happening to me or is it still a bug for the bug list? MHBrown
