AutoCAD. Title blocks. Signatures
When creating the Title blocks plugin, there was a choice - use blocks or use tables. After weighing all the pros and cons, it was decided to use tables, as they are more flexible and convenient for programmatic filling. But, unfortunately, they impose some restrictions. One such limitation is the insertion of signatures.
AutoCAD allows us to insert blocks into table cells, but we have not yet met a single signature that would fit exactly into a 15x5 mm rectangle. And we must somehow get out of this situation.
We decided to resort to the most obvious solution - insert signatures directly over the title block. Of course, there are many downsides to this - signatures have no connection with title blocks, they cannot be quickly and conveniently replaced, unlike fields. But all the same it is better than nothing at all! In addition, AutoCAD out of the box has functionality sufficient for batch replacement of signatures in all title blocks.
Well, for the release of the new functionality, we have prepared a video, which is both a demonstration and a guide for use:
