COPYING TITLE BLOCKS?

    A long time ago I created my own A thru E size borders with title blocks. Now I've decided to redo the title blocks. I've revised one of my borders with the new block. Other than recreating this separately on each border, what would be the easiest way to do this?

    Thanks.

    Create and save out a custom symbol then insert that into your other drawing formats. Note that you need to be in sketch mode to create the symbol.

    Almost. When I create the symbol, it includes all the lines, but not all of the text?

    :confused: Hmmm, When I activate "Sketch on sheet" and WINDOW select a title block it selects all the lines and Text Fields and Text Labels.

    For some reason it doesn't include the "Third angle projection note, or tolerance note or tolerances?

    It doesn't recognize them as "Smart notes".

    Looks like I have to make them "Labels"

    I created those notes on my formats as custom symbols that were inserted later.

    Seems in doing this I have wound up with a few custom symbols, including some that are not being used, but I can't delete them? Can they be deleted?

    If you are editing the format you should be able to delete the extra symbols.
    I just looked at a couple of my other templates and they have the tolerance block and proprietary note placed as label text. So at some point I must have made a change from symbols to Labels.
