When you say will Envisioneer globally update the sheet field, do you mean will Envisioneer know . . Nick
I was actually asking Rick regarding FormTool
><snip><I know that I have to manually adjust the sheet numbers in AutoCAD, APDesign or Build if I need them changed.
With AP running on R14 (one BIG paperspace, remember?) there was a function which asked user how many plan views of each location, how many elevations etc & based on the response created sufficient titleblocks & incremented the page #..
"Go to Dwgs" would Zoom Window around the relevant border which made navigating a large dwg so simple. - just like jumping from layout to layout these days (provided one only has 1 block existing on Layer BORDER!)
All I ask for is having the same functionality.
If user needs to add an additional sheet, Env needs to be smart enough to increase the value of the SheetTotal field accordingly (on each sheet) AP already allows me to globally edit attributes, but if I rearrange the sheet order I have to manually edit the SheetNo attribute.
The SheetNo field of the latest sheet added will automatically be entered as being equal to the new value of SheetTotal.
Plz note that I've designed my titleblock such that it can be used on both Landscape & portrait A3. I only use A3 now as clients didn't wish to find a specialist to duplicate larger formats so for acreage lots I'll use 2 site plans, 1:500 say, indicating location of buildings wrt boundaries then 1:200 for more precise location of pool, outbuildings etc. Townhouse developments get 4 elevations of each individual block.
However, this is my dream: :lol: (& I'm sure you can do it)
User is presented with a drop-down list of all sheets containing titleblocks.
User can then rearrange the order of those sheets just as MS Office users have been able to do on the Office toolbar since last century.
Based on that order specified by the user SheetNo fields & SheetTotal fields are automatically adjusted accordingly.
I'm sure you can come up with the goods (& probably add an even better twist)
