Protel DXP: Title block woes

  1. Fellow EDA users,

    Protel DXP, Service Pack 2, on a Windows 2000/SP3 system. No
    problems drawing schematics except for one little detail. When I go to
    'Document Options' and 'Parameters,' I can't get the blanks in the title
    block to fill in no matter how hard I try.

    Example: I'll locate the 'Title' section in the parameter list,
    highlight it, fill it in, click 'Visible,' and then 'OK.' However, it
    never shows up in the actual title block on the sheet. The same thing
    applies to the 'Document Number,' 'Drawn By,' and other normally-blank
    fields. I can edit them until I'm blue in the face, but they never
    change on the actual sheet.

    Even stranger: When I go back into the 'Parameters' list, the
    'Visible' box has mysteriously become un-checked.

    So -- Has anyone else encountered this issue? Or perhaps I'm doing
    something really stupid, and I just haven't realized it yet?

    Please advise. Thanks in advance.
