Things have slowed a bit around here and I wanted to take advantage of the free time. I messed around here and there a bit with writing a custom journal for assigning attributes to our details for die designs. However I have never got it to work the way I wanted to. What I'm looking to create is a journal file that will bring up a dialog box with blank fields that I can input data in and that data will be saved as an attribute that will populate the title block when I enter drafting. Since we are a die shop, I'm would like to be able to enter detail name, number, size, material type, hardening, etc. Any suggestions on how to get started?
