is there a way to take two tags an add them together and make a new third tag. example customer number(klm01-01-5000a-001-e + page number to create a single tag the produces klm01-01-5000a-001-e001 as the final format to be placed back in the title block data in the drawing.

Hi tobor,

Yes, simply put the two tags in your script back to back wherever needed.

See the Title-Block Update Wizard.

You are not limited to simply the items in the drop-down menus... you can cut/paste them together in the script editor.

For instance... I have a script that updates the datestamp in drawings with a "Title" block, and a "date" attribute...


I've taken the individual string $MM$ string and the $DD$ string and the $YYYY$ string, and combined them with a "/" divider to produce the current date separated by "/".

In the above script, todays date would be outputted upon batch script creation as 10/17/2014.

Hope that helps!
