How to apply "DB_DWG_TEMPLATE" or something same on previusly created drawings?

How to apply "DB_DWG_TEMPLATE" or something same on previusly created drawings?

Hello friends
Recently I updated my drawing templates and included a new attribute using "DB_DWG_TEMPLATE_Attr"
that "Attr" is the desired new attribute. All thing works fine and newly created drawings show the attribute at specific note that I want.

But i have a whole bunch of previously created drawings to be update. "DB_DWG_TEMPLATE_" won’t work with old ones and only is applicable to drawing templates.
How can I cope with old drawings? is anyway to use something like "DB_DWG_TEMPLATE_" for previously created drawings?

Best regards
NX 12

RE: How to apply "DB_DWG_TEMPLATE" or something same on previusly created drawings?

You cannot apply a new template to an existing drawing. Unfortunately, as this would make my life much easier as well. LOL
Easiest would be for you to create a journal which will add this attribute to the already existing drawing.
