Assigning and copying object data

After creating all the data fields you want for a drawing, you can create a database. The Object data docker and the Object Data Manager provide all the commands and features you need to add and edit object information.

The Object data docker is best for entering data for single objects. It lets you add, edit, and delete object data.The Object Data Manager, in contrast, is best for entering and editing data for multiple objects. It provides many of the editing features available in popular spreadsheet applications.

You can use one object’s data entries to update another object’s data entries. This function does not replace an object’s data entries; rather, it appends fields and data where appropriate.
