Schematic title block editing

Sasha.A , 10-21-2019, 02:04 PM

Can someone please explain to me how can I fill the schematic title block fields?
I couldn't find online any information about it.
I am using ALTIUM DESIGNER 18.

Hi Sasha,
do you mean this? (see picture)
In this case, you need edit the template file, should be in your C:/Users/public/Documents/Altium/Ad18/Templates and edit or create a file named *.schDot and add field as you need puting text and using the prefix =. For example: my field Project I use: Project: = ProjectName.

Save with extension *schDot and now you can use it as template proyect sheet

Hope you find useful.

You can also hide the default title block and create your own. In Schematic symbol library, draw your own title block, set Type to Graphical and you can use it. I may be doing video about this.

PS: You can put there Project parameters, so it will fill out automatically. I attached also the library file.

PSS: @Sasha.A please do not delete your previous comments so the post makes sense. Thank you.
