Full control of Xref names

Anonymous
Not applicable
I need to have full control of names of generated Xrefs while exporting from layout to DWG.

AC12 provide a possibility to set the drawing title and herby controlling if the Xref should contain View ID/Name/Custom – but it will always be identical to the drawing title info. The Xref name is not necessarily that.

While AC12 automatically gives X-refs layout ID and Layout names – it also changes dot’s into underscore.

I would like to be abel - maybe in the translating setting setup - to control all parts of the Xref name.

That is because neither Windows nor Mac accepts dots in filenames. If Archicad didn't do this, your files would not work as intended at the addressee.

But the dots from the Layout Name/ID which is shortcut'ed into the Publishing Set, is no problem?

Sorry. Haven't seen that. We don't use dots there.
