Text fields are platform functionality that can be used to display information from various sources (see the articles listed in the See Also section) on drawings. This article describes steps to be taken to ensure that the information displayed stays up-to-date when the source data changes.
The following process should be performed on any existing drawing where text fields are used. Also consider performing the procedure on the seed file(s) to make subsequently created drawings update fields automatically. If the following process is not done, the text fields on the drawing will only update manually (Tools > Text > Update All Fields).
