    Hi ,

    I know this thread is out of date but I was wondering if you solved your problem? I want to be able to access a custom property to get the value and then say if value = x then do Y etc. What it should do is change the visibility of the titleblock. The custom property will be " current Revision". I have found code that will allow me to change the visibility but I now need to access the sheet set property. If you can assist me in anyway I would be very grateful thanks. I have also started another thread on this matter but thought I would jusk ask here anyway.

    thanks

    I was never able to get Sheetset custom properties to work. I dont think that it is something that is easily possible using LISP. Our office abandoned the possibility of using the sheet set manager for anything useful back in 2005. In 2007 we started using an excel spread sheet and custom drawing properties to fill in our title blocks and do other things.

    The Sheet Set Manager (SSM) is only accessible in languages other than Visual LISP.
