On a CAD or CLD, attributes / tag names can be optionally displayed.
DBDOC writes the tag name and tag description above a tagged block. Like display of specs, there is a view where the tag data is drawn directly on the sheet and a view where the tag data is drawn with a gray background. You can cycle through the views by pressing the 'A' key on your keyboard.
On the View Menu, click Attributes/Tag Names (shortcut A). By right-clicking in the content pane and selecting Attributes/Tag Names, the dropdown menu gives the options of Regular, Layered and Off, as well as Cycle Display Modes.
Note: The tag name and description are drawn from the tag databases built with the project, not from attributes within the CAD files. There is no need to do a WinCAD tag synch before building your project.
Note: Support for toggling tag names on graphics was removed in DBDOC 10.7. They are now shown only on CAD/CLDs.
Regular: Displays Attributes for a particular block in plain text.
Layered: Displays Attributes for a particular block with a gray background.
Off: Turns the Attributes display off.
Cycle Display Modes: Cycles through the three display modes above (also can be done by pressing A).
