    and what's really frustrating? Fields will recognize line breaks if the source is the comments in DWGPROPS.

    And even more frustrating...? This could probably be fixed by the proper programmer in 1/2 hour and included in the next SP.
    I predict we'll never see it though.

    WHEN is this going to be added? It seems that everyone has just given up. Come on Autodesk! As pointed out you already support line breaks in the DWGPROPS! Please get to this. Manually generating a drawing index for everyone of our projects because we are unable to have a single field for the drawing title is frustrating.

    Possible work around:
    Use "non-breaking spaces" where you want a space between words and use a "space" where you want a new line. Insert teh field in MTEXT and adjust teh width.
    (Non beakinf space = ALT+0160, select for symbol, copy from character map, etc.)

    This_is_the_First_Line The_Second_Line The_Third_Line ("_" indicates non-breaking space.)
    ^space ^ space
    This is the First Line
    The Second Line
    The Third Line
