Pinned topic Default Annotations for newly created tables and columns

‏2013-02-26T09:02:44Z |
Hi,

I'm using a set of Annotations for every table and column, and when I create a new table or column, I have to add all of these Annotations manually.
Can I somehow define default annotations, which are automatically added for newly created tables and columns?

Thanks for your help!
Best regards
Mark

    Hi RGSMani

    No, unfortunately I did not get an answer here and I also was not able to find a way to do it myself... Probably it is not possible in IDA. But if you figure it out somehow, please post your solution here, I am still interested.

    Best regards

    Hi MarkOrmos,

    I got couple of responses to my other post "Annotations - for all attributes". You may want to look into that and see if this can help with your issue. I havent tried it yet. I will be looking into it shortly.

     

    Thanks

    Hi RGSMani,

    Thanks for the hint, it is definitely a nice solution in your case. Unfortunately in my case it is not very efficient, since I already have my annotations set and for the new tables and columns I can also insert those attributes manually with the same effort.

    But in your case I would create a pluglet to do the job, as suggested. These pages and posts might help you:
