    Quite often clients will request that you use their title border. Furthermore they often insist that no changes are made to their title border which can be an issue with most electrical CAD/CAE programs. However, with AutoCAD® Electrical, you can map the clients title border attributes to the intelligent AutoCAD® Electrical fields with ease. The video explains how.

    When a new project is created, the user is faced with the Description dialogue box where information is entered about the project such as the job number, customer, site reference etc AutoCAD® Electricals’ Project Descriptions can be modified. The most common method is to create a text file called DEFAULT_WDTITLE.WDL and place this file in the project directory if the values are specific to the client.
