importing title blocks from 2016

Recommended Posts

I am trying to import and use custom title blocks created in VW2016. However these are not showing up in Title Block Manager as an available style. The only way I can use them is by cutting and pasting from an old file to a new 2019 file. It seems that Title Blocks must in a new format under 2019.


Help please.

Hello @jeremyb,


If you are using Sheet Borders or VAA Title Blocks you should be able to update them to Title Block borders in VW 2018 and above. If you are using symbols, you will have to create TBB object and click on "Import Graphics" button in the Settings dialog and select that symbol, in order to be able to use that symbol with the TBManager.


If you need any further help, you could send me a test file.


Best Regards,

Nikolay Zhelyazkov

Short answer, Yes, the Title Block tool and object changed significantly in VW2018/VW2019. You will need to learn about the new system to use it effectively. Better in many ways.
