I want to be able to edit title block data in sheet files without having to open the files. I have tried CONNECTs new "Sheet index" feature and it does exactly what I'm looking for.
But...with sheet index only simple string items can be set to be properties of sheet models.For things like title, date, scale,... this is fine. But what about revisions?
I have about 12 lines in each sheet. Each line consists of following properties:
This is like 12x5=60 additional string properties for each sheet? hm...would be a mess, no?
On the other hand I've tried Item types:
But...with Items I don't know how to edit them WITHOUT opening the model. Or administrate my sheets.
So, I'm looking for combination of Sheet index and "advanced" custom item types.Maybe this is possible with tables or reports or blah?Or do I have to write a custom tool for this? Hopefully not!
How do you handle this?Any ideas?
For advice or inspiration I would be very thankful. Maybe there is just some feature I do not know of...

Have you considered Custom Properties for WorkSets. From the Workpage you can edit those custom properties without opening each file.
These custom properties can be used in fields and are found under file properties.
Yes, the WorkSet would be another place where I could edit properties. Like the custom sheet properties inside the sheet index. These are both valid solutions for simple data like title, date of creation, scale, sheet size....and I would use them for that kind of data.
But my Problem is about the "Revision table".....
I dont want to create a property for EACH table cell. With items I can model my data a little better but (as stated in previous posts) I don't know about a way to edit them without opening the file....
