On formats, text that is not part of a table will not by 'evaluated' when the format is placed onto a drawing (just shows up as a 'dumb' note).



You can create tables in the format, or you may already have an existing table. If you are trying to place this text into a pre-existing title-block area on the format, odds are that there is already a table there. Instead of creating a 'note' and positioning it manually, you'll want to use the Table / Enter Text function to actually enter the text into a cell in that table.

Thanks for that :)

what you said made perfect sense too and better yet it WORKED!.



but how do i remove the boarders associated with the table?

so it just appears as a text rather than text in a box?





thanks heaps!
