Managing Revision Attributes Order in SOLIDWORKS Electrical

Most of our customers ask this question about the revision attributes order. When the title block is modified, you will notice that even though Revision attributes are placed as REV0, REV1, REV2 and so on, in ascending order (from top to bottom), but when the title block is closed and we look into the drawing, the first revision will show on the bottom-most attribute and next revision will be added above the first revision and so on.

This is the default setting in SOLIDWORKS Electrical and can be changed to see the revisions in ascending or descending order.

Fill attribute for recent revision filed has two different options:

  • ‘Always fill lower index attributes’: This option forces the display of the revision index on the bottom of the revision grid, without taking account of the index number of the attributes.
Always Fill lower Index attribute first

  • ‘Fill attributes from index’: This option allows you to insert the revision index into the corresponding attributes. For example, if the attribute with the index number -0 (current revision) is inserted on the top of the revision grid, the current revision index will be inserted on the top of the revision grid.
