Is there a way to assign custom column numbers in drawings? I have several drawings with 2 columns, and I would like to change the designation of the columns to anything else but 1 and 2.
How about creating your own template?
?? do you mean to create a custom sheet for each drawing?...not feasible.
Did I say making a template and reusing it over and over again ?
Can someone else please answer the question?
I am not exactly sure if this will answer your question or not, but try following steps-
1) Open any title block with columns ( from title block manager)
2) "Edit title block" tab will appear.
3) Check the properties of the title block.
4) The "columns" field shows properties of the column.
5) Change the value for number of first column field. PLEASE NOTE- THE VALUE SHOULD BE NUMERIC VALUE, NOT ANY CHARACTER.
6)Save the title bock, close it and apply this to all your drawings.
Hope this helps you..
The issue I'm having with the Template is that the column numbering is resetting for each sheet. In other words SHEET-1 with two columns will have the columns 1 and 2; SHEET-2 with two columns will also have the columns 1 and 2.
I'd like to know if there is a way to show SHEET-1 with columns 1 and 2, and SHEET-2 with columns 3 and 4, or any number I want to assign the column. If there is a way to do this using a Template that would be great, but in order to assign column numbers, I'm guessing this needs to happen at the Drawing level.
You can go to Project->Configuration->Project->Templates. There you can select the default project template you want for each king of drawing (the size of the sheet, the number of row...). If there's not the template you want, like Christian Chu told you need to make your own.
Hope it helps!
If I'm understanding your question correctly, I'd change the column formula in your Project Configuration, I tried this and got out what you're looking for...
IIF(FILE_ORDERNO==1, COLUMN_ORDERNO, ((2*FILE_ORDERNO)-2)+ COLUMN_ORDERNO)
So, if it is the first page, give the COLUMN_ORDERNO counter (1,2). Otherwise, do the secondary formula, which gives the sheet count you mentioned above. Sheet 2 would have Column marks 3,4. Sheet 3 would have column marks 5, 6. Worked for me, hope that helps.
