Has anyone here managed to successfully create an automatic drawing issue sheet? We like to do it in a grid like style so you can easily see previous issues and the current issue for each layout in the drawing set. The current setups are all a bit too wordy and too much information. It seems a bit silly to have to do it manually when all the info is in there!
These are found under Project Indexes. You can add a few criteria to filter the 'input' (which issues do you want shown) and then you can add a number of fields. You can always add extra things to your issue scheme to show up in the fields.
I have to say we are still a bit 'old school' when it comes to changes and issues, so haven't actually added these. We prefer to describe the 'short version' of our changes, rather than marking up every single element that got changed or added and just point an arrow in the general direction.
If you've made a list / index for your layouts, it works much the same way.
I've looked at these and know I can amend them to make them less so, but they are really wordy and don't really look like a transmittal sheet. I want it to look more like this. Most of this is automatic, but I have to add the date, who has the issue and the revision issue manually
That actually looks like our listing of layouts. I guess through the magic of language barrier, I misunderstood.
We actually have fields for 'issue' dates on our layout info (change A, B, C etc) and then added these to a layout index.
The green bit is the index, the rest of this was drafted on a worksheet with the use of autotext fields to grab the date, project number etc. Saved the view and added both the saved view and the index to a layout sheet.
the actual settings in case it helps: all the blue fields are Layout Info fields. So we just select all our layouts and fill these out in one go for the most part.
thanks for this. I think I'm going to have to do some experimentation. It's a shame that custom text fields are required, when all the information is there already. I have found a custom GDL object online which is similar the the object you can get for the drawing sheets, but it's very expensive. If i find a solution, I'll post it here!
