NOTE: Always make a backup of the prototypes folder before you customize.

Note that although the block has the same name in all the prototypes, it is not actually the same block. An ASDETPROTO-Assembly-ANSI-B prototype will have a different HYPERSTEELPAGEHEADER than an ASDETPROTO-Single- ANSI-B
Prototype and an ASDETPROTO- ANSI-B prototype. See figures below.

How to add an image or logo to the prototype HYPERSTEELPAGEHEADER

If you want Advance Steel to complete the value of an attribute with intelligent text, such as the Project data completed when creating a new Project file, you must use an attribute from the list of recognized tokens.

We will embed a logo rather than link the logo to the file. By default, the image is actually linked into the file if using the Attach tool. This means that the image must always be accessible by the file, and cannot be moved, deleted, etc., otherwise you end up with a line of text where the image is located. If you embed the image or logo, it doesn't matter what happens to the original. The HYPERSTEELPAGEHEADER, (title block) carries the image with it indefinitely.
