Automate finding of Drawings with Custom Names

Brian Spears

It would be nice to be able to automatically find Drawings whose Name is customized rather than "By View: Name only" or "By View: ID + Name".

The Project Index can be set up to put Source View and Drawing name next to each other, but as far as I can tell there isn't a way to get the Project Index to look for or sort by Drawings with Custom Names.

Yes, this would be very useful! When you have a teamwork project with people with different skills and attention to office standards, you need to check for details, sections and others being renamed the wrong way.


+ Search for VIEWS that have custom names!
