Inserting Dates without using Properties

Michael_CoffeeMichael_Coffee Member Posts: 88 ✭✭✭
Is there currently any method of inserting a date into a drawing that does not rely on properties? The only field I see is where you can customize the date format, but nothing about inserting one.

    You can insert the date by creating a note, then chose the drawing properties drop down and select which date you want to reference, based on when it was drawn, edited, or approved

    Not sure of any other way without using the properties that is still auto-updating... Otherwise you just add a note and manually type out the date.

    If the issue is, you want it to display a different date, then you can edit the drawing properties with a handy calendar.
