Displaying Attributes

  1. If the desired display format is not yet specified as a displayable attribute type, create a type.
  2. Use the Place Text Node tool to place text nodes as placeholders for the attributes that will be displayed.

  3. Use the Attach Displayable Attributes tool to designate the text nodes as displayable attribute text nodes of the desired type. Be sure to follow the prompts at the bottom of the screen.
    Note: The displayable attribute type is set in the Attach Displayable Attributes settings window. Once a displayable attribute linkage is attached, its type cannot be changed.
  4. Use the Load Displayable Attributes tool to load the attributes for display in the displayable attribute text nodes. This may be used with the Fence tool to update all text nodes.
  5. (Optional) If you change the displayable attribute select statement or the values of the displayed attributes and you want to reflect the changes in the design, reload the attributes using the Load Displayable Attributes tool .
