Creating A Title Block – Now that we have arranged the viewports on a sheet layer, we can add a title block. There are two tools that we can use for this: Sheet Border or VAA Title Block. If you are using the NZ/Aust version of Vectorworks, use the VAA Title Block. If you are using the international version of Vectorworks, use the Sheet Border tool.

This session looked at creating a custom sheet border (Title Block). We started with a simple custom title block for the sheep border. We looked at the options on the object info palette to edit the border, edit the scale of the title block, edit the text on the title block, and so on.
Then we looked at editing the symbol that controls the title block. There are some parts of the title block symbol that are designed to be static (don’t change) and some parts that are designed to be dynamic (change for each drawing and revision). Care has to be taken when editing or deleting these parts of the symbol. Finally, we added to the title block to remove parts that are not required and we also removed these from the record format and dialog box that controls the text on the title block.
In this session we built a custom title block that would work with the Sheet Border tool. The easiest way to do this is to is to start with the Sheet Border tool, choose the title block symbol that is the closest to your preferred title block, then use the Resource Browser to edit the symbol. There are some things that are easy to change, some things that you should edit and some parts that you should not delete. If you use one of the Custom Title blocks you will find that it is very flexible, you can even edit the dialog box that controls the title block information.
In this session we discussed what types of things you should put in your template file, what types of things should you put your default content, title blocks (particularly the Vectorworks Architect Australia/New Zealand title block) and line types. Continue reading
