Naming Xref’s

Not applicable
Anyone knows if it’s possible to control the name of the Xrefs while export layout to DWG?

The views, placed on the layout, have both ID and View name . Only View Name are shown in the drawing title.

The Xrefs should be named only the View ID, but since AC12 I can’t get rid of the Layout ID and Layout Name in the Xref name.
And it seems to me that it’s not possible to have the Xref named the View ID, when it’s not showen in the drawing title?

Any hints?

I do not see any control in the Translator Setup Dialog which could influence this so I say this is not possible and ArchiCAD creates naming automatically.
If you feel this is important for you, start a Wish and let us see if it gains good support because then GS will need to consider its implementation.
