I'm trying to make attribute link in my drafting with model.When I make AL for example nomenclature in drafting, and change nomenclature in catpart,that change is not updated in drafting.Why?

RE: Attribute link

Try doing a c:Force Update in the Power Input bar. I don't believe the Attribute modification will be enough to flag the DrawingView update flag to fire in certain scenarios.

RE: Attribute link

Attribute modification won't cause title block text update. Also colors won't be updated if you change change model color. As dougsnell said use force update.

How do you create title block?

CODE --> vb6

Set MyTextGetRevDate1 = MyDrawingViews.ActiveView.Texts.Add("" & Format(Date, "dd/MM/yyyy"), XLocDate, YLocDate)
MyTextGetRevDate1.Name = "RevisionBlock_Text_Date_" & Revision
MyTextGetRevDate1.SetFontSize 0, 0, 1.5
MyTextGetRevDate1.SetFontName 0, 0, "Century Gothic (TrueType)"
MyTextGetRevDate1.AnchorPosition = catMiddleCenter
