Create a drawing option to make formats 100% embedded or 100% parametric

Create a drawing option to make formats 100% embedded or 100% parametric

We have gone through a few iterations of our formats over the years. The latest forced us to change some table sizes. This has resulted in additional vertical lines in the title block area when old drawings are retrieved with the latest versions of formats. If we want to re-issue the drawing without changing the format we must retrieve the old version of the format. This can cause issues when working on new drawings in the same workspace. All of the information required on our title blocks lives in the models hence use the power of parametric's. Formats currently are NOT parametric. I propose PTC to create a option to allow formats to work 100% parametric or 100% embedded into the drawing, not somewhere in between. As shown in images below if we could define the drawing to update 100% to new formats we could save time from updating the formats when changes occur. Please vote this up.
