Grid referencing

G'day from Perth Aust


I was asked the other day about grid referencing on drawingsand although I have a alfa/numeric grid on all of my formats and reference details to relevent coordinates, I do this manually.


Is there a way of making the grid "inteligent"? By this I mean that if I use a symbol to show grid coordinates eg; D5, if I move the detail to G3 it would be nice if the symbol auto updated to the new coordinate.


This function would be a very handy tool for big drawing sheets with multiple models and detailed views etc, especially when you have to re arrange the views because of drawing changes.
