This can be done from the Export dialog. Clauses from project specificiations and office standards may be exported.

Fig 2. The exported database may be edited in Notepad or MS Access to remove clauses that are not required for annotation
Fig 3. The project specific keynotes may be easily attached to elements in the Building Information Model (BIM). Within the CAD software these keynotes allow easy reporting, scheduling and quantities to be generated.
Fig 4. The element now in the BIM model has the NBS keynote as one of its key properties
In the UK the Construction Project Information Committee recommends that CAD models are annotated with the clause numbers and titles from project specifications.
