Layout text/information displayed on multiple pages

Recommended Posts

I want to create a text box or table that can be edited in one master location, then displayed and automatically updated in other locations on layout pages.  I don't want the information on every page, so the 0 page wont work.  I want to use this for general plan notes and square footage's.  I've looked into macros, but it only gives me Global macros as an option in the layout.  Attached is an image of what I'm working with which I display on some layout pages, but not all.  Currently I either update the information on each page, or update one and copy paste to the other pages.  I want to reduce the chance for user error of updating each one or copy/pasting.

You can have more than one template page.  Sounds like this might be a solution for you.

If I created a second template page those text boxes would to locked in the same position on the other pages, correct?  Ideally I would like the option to move the text boxes depending on spacing, etc.

There are many ways to do this.  Some using custom macros, but also...

 

You can just create a CAD Detail

in plan or layout and then send from that CAD Detail to layout.  You would have layout boxes all linked to the single CAD Detail instead of multiple text objects.

Yes they would be locked in position and you would need to work around them using the template method.

I never thought about a CAD Detail in the Layout file, that should work perfect.
