About Drawing Properties

Keep track of your drawings by add keywords and other information.

Use Windows Explorer

Drawing properties can help you identify a drawing. Some drawing properties are stored
by the operating system; for example, drawing type, location, and size. These values
are read-only in the drawing file and can only be changed through Windows Explorer.

Use the Find Tool

The Find tool in a standard file selection dialog box can use this information. For
example, you can search for all files created on a certain date, or for files you
modified yesterday.

Use DesignCenter

You can create additional properties in drawing files. You can store author, title,
and subject, and you can assign keywords, hyperlink addresses or directory paths,
and custom properties to your drawings. The Advanced tab in the Search tool in DesignCenter
can use these properties to locate drawing files.

Use Sheet Set Manager Properties

With the Sheet Set Manager, you can assign a sheet title, number, and a description
to every sheet in a sheet set. (Not available in AutoCAD LT)

Display Properties in Fields

You can assign any of the drawing properties to a field in a text object.
