    Default XML Metadata

    Is there any way to "imbed" and XML metadata in a drawing?...or...does anyone have any advice on utilizing the XML functionality, in regards to metadata?

    Default Re: XML Metadata

    The "Meta" element in an XML file is confusing, at first. It has no "Content" but it ahs attributes that you can define. One of them is Content and some of the others are Id, Name,Skip-Content,Pics-Label and Title. You can add these in a normal text editor easily, or in your stylesheet. If you look at the Drawing Properties, this is the Metadata that is embedded into the drawing already, Author, Date cretaed and so on. So if you want to add this info to your drawings, run the drawingprops command and add what you want, it even allowsw for Custom properties.
