I was looking at the database report and the extract attribute functions to see which might be more practicable for me to use in regard to the custom fields and block attributes or a combination of both. While the database reports give alot more options I found that it wouldn't display an Ω symbol (I didn't try any other symbol) nor would the custom properties allow it to be inputted, it gets converted to a "O". Whereas the block attributes and extract attribute report will allow the Ω symbol.
Point being, I need to make a lot of symbols and want to include extractable information to make certain calculations easier, so I am looking for other ideas of where custom feilds/block attribute are best suited. Other than you can display block attributes on the drawing and the custom field has data input constraints (text and numbers or numbers only) I don't see much difference between the two. So I am looking for input from people who have more experiance with them, the good and the bad (trying to minimize the amount of fumbling through and having to correct/change the same thing on many symbol files individually).
While I will primarily be making RC model airplane planes, there will be mechanical drawings and possibly electronic schematics and associated component drawings.
Almost forgot, custom fields in symbols are useless unless you have all the database fields set up in your template.
Just a hobby user.
