DRAWING CONNECTION WITH PART

I can not find any info, but would be great to connect part properties with drawing title block.

    @arturs_zipris The title block is connected to drawing properties with the default Onshape templates.  You can edit the properties by right clicking a drawings tab.

    @cody_armstrong  I tried, even hit update button several times, but nothing updated in my title block, when I changed properties in my part.

    @arturs_zipris The current system has only a few default fields in the templates. Expansion to cover part properties and other fields like material and mass is underway. I've added you to the request.

    @arturs_zipris You may be doing the same thing that I did at first when I tried it.
    You need to update the properties of the Drawing itself, not the Part in order to get them to show up in the title block.

    It would be nice and make more sense (to me at least) if it automatically brought in the properties of the part or assembly when you made a drawing from it. That way you don't have to type in all the same properties twice.

    Tom's First Rule of Using Computers:

    Never, ever, ever type, store or update the same piece of data in more than one place.

    Amen for having only 1 truth / version.

    When configurations come into picture, I would like to able to mass update metadata for selected configurations (material, tolerance or other general change)

    @tom_scarince That is exactly why I ask for this functionality!
