    Would you enter title block information as a preformatted block with
    attributes, a preformatted block with just text and explode it if you need
    to edit, or just enter the information as text? Also, what about standard
    notes, revision information and BOM?

    One more thing ,would you draw the title block for each drawing, insert it
    as block or insert it as an xref?

    Would you enter title block information as a preformatted block withI use both sometimes... there is NO standard way. Just what seems to
    work for you (IMHO).

    Also, what about standard notes, revision information and BOM?
    I have a block for Revisions as it is (for me) just Rev. #, Date and
    Revision Description. So attributes work.
    Again (for me), I use both... If I have a Revision change for ALL
    drawings, a Block is more useful (especially if you have a lot of
    drawings). But If I issue ONE drawing, then I usually insert a block
    for that drawing.

    Just no set way from my point of view...

    Our titleblocks are all xref drawings. I can't tell you the number of
    projects whose title changes 1/2 hour before the pdf's are to be made
    and sent for printing. For us, it saves a lot of time and headache and
    everything looks the same from one drawing to the next.

    On the xref drawing itself: project name, address, project number -
    there could be several, ie: clients proj. number, arch's proj number and
    our project number. Date of issue. Logos. Things of that nature.

    Items unique to a drawing, but part of the titleblock: Drawing number,
    sometimes a drawing file name. The sheet title: Floor Plan -
    Electrical, Plumbing isometrics, etc. Initials of who worked on the
    drawing. And also revision notations, because each drawing may be
    revised at a different time.

    That is what we do and the why of it. Think it through and use what is
    most convenient and consistent for your line of work.
