You can create revision tables for drawing files or for particular sheets. The scope of the revision table is selected when you create a revision table. The data in revision tables with the same scope are maintained concurrently, but all other formatting changes are maintained separately on individual revision tables.
Revision tags indicate the revision for objects on the drawing sheet. The resource for the revision number displayed in the revision tag is the corresponding revision table. When you create a revision tag, it displays the revision number from the active row. To display another revision number, right-click the revision tag, and then select a revision number from the Tag list.
Each row in the revision table is differentiated by a unique identifier: Revision Number. The Revision Number is provided by auto-indexing, Revision Number iProperty (Drawing), or Sheet Revision property. If alphanumeric auto-indexing is used, then I, O, Q, S, X, and Z characters are excluded from the indexing sequence by default. You can customize the list of excluded characters on the General tab of the Standard Style panel.
When you create a revision table, you select the table scope and the numbering schema for auto-indexing used if you add a revision row. If you select the Update Property on Revision Number Edit check box, then any edit made to the Revision Number cell in the active row (including adding a new row where the revision number is auto-indexed) is written back to either the drawing iProperty or the sheet property.
When you create a revision tag, and no revision table exists in the drawing or on the drawing sheet, you must specify properties of the revision table first. Then you can place revision tags. If you later create a revision table, it respects the selected settings.
The default formatting for revision tables and tags is defined by the revision table style. You canand set it as the default for revision tags or tables in Object Defaults. You can reapply the custom style to objects placed in the drawing (for instance to clear local overrides).
Use Revision Tag to add revision tags with or without a revision table on the sheet. If a revision table exists, revision tags automatically use the revision number from the active row in the revision table.
You can create a revision table for a drawing or for a drawing sheet. You can edit the data displayed in the revision table, customize the text style, line style, text format, add or remove rows, and add or remove columns in the table.
Placed revision tables saved in a template are available to new drawings based on the template, but do not affect existing drawings.
