Add Autotext for user selected Drawing ID/Name

Tomek Piatek

At times, I find that I need to refer to a particular drawing, by ID or Name, inside a label or text note. For example, "Refer to elevation Bathroom 04", where "Bathroom 04" is an Autotext field whose value was selected by me from a list of drawings placed on my layouts.

 

I imagine this to work similarly to placing a linked marker where a list pops us to select what the marker will refer to. Once the Autotext field has been entered it will automatically update itself to reflect the ID/Name of the drawing.

Hey! Whaddaya know, this is already possible! I had no idea and I stumbled upon this feature quite by accident while I was looking at the list of available AUTOTEXT keywords. Here's the corresponding manual page for AC26:
