Drawing Titles have mind of their own Layout Sheets


This is an issue I have been having for a long time I finally decided to make a post about it. 


When I add a drawing to the View Map to the a sheet in the Layout Book, the titles, more often than not, end up all over the place. Sometimes I have to "fit in window" so I can find the titles. I have searched the web and this forum for an answer and I have not found one. 


I'd like my titles to follow and stick with the drawings. Any suggestions.

I found out that if you turn off the drawing titles and turn it back on it would stick to the bottom of the drawing box. 😎

it might have kept the same setting from a previously placed Drawing with it's title 47kms from it's drawing.


the way i worked around this was to simply create a Favourite for placing drawings. this locates the title right under the drawing when placed & you avoid having to manually move the title 47kms from some rando spot in the Layout.

another idea is to ditch the drawing title and setup a master layout with autotext place in specific locations where you would usually place your drawing titles. 😁
