I am a recent Vectorworks convert who is trying to create a custom drawing label that shows not only the
1. drawing number
2. drawing title

3. drawing scale

4. type of drawing (elevation, section, etc)

The VWX default drawing labels include elements 1-3 and I'm trying to figure out how to add #4.  In ACAD, I created a custom dynamic blocks for such elements, but I can't see how to make any modifications to the drawing labels in Vectorworks.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I make my own title blocks, so I don't know about the canned VW objects.  But making your own works fine.  Make them a symbol, and attach records to enter the info items you want.  See "Link Text to Record" to display that information in each unique instance of your symbol.  When you select a symbol set up this way, you will look at the "Data" tab in the Object Info Palette (OIP) to be able to manage your records.  Here's what that will look like (you can have more than one Record Format for a symbol object):


Other users may have advice tailored to the VW title block object.
