    Default Autocad 2004 - Insert a "Custom Property" in the drawing ?

    Hi !

    In the past, I used Autocad Arch 2011 and I do what I want easily...

    But for the now, with Autocad 2004, I can't add a Custom Property (dwgprops)...

    Is someone can help me ? Thanks in advance !

    Unhappy Re: Autocad 2004 - Insert a "Custom Property" in the drawing ?

    Hi !

    Maybe my question is not really clear...

    I created in the "DWGPROPS" a Custom Property named APPT...

    Is there a way to display her value in a TEXT or MTEXT wherever in the drawing ?

    Thanks in advance !

    No, that would require a "field" which didn't exist back then as far as I can remember.

    It's probably possible with LISP - not having access to 2004 I can't walk you through it, and the method of storing and accessing dwgprops data has changed over the years. But LISP would not be 'live', it would just create a static text element that showed a constant value -- at that point you might as well just put it in as text.


    Maybe look into RTEXT?

    Hi, if I really understand, as soon as my custom property (APPT) will change, the text will still the same ?
