Automating Pasting Solidworks Notes

Question asked by Greg Hynd on Apr 24, 2018

I would like some help please, or ideas on how to speed up a process we seem to do a lot. At the moment on our drawings we often have to label up a lot of glass panels, often they are all slightly different sizes. Think stairs / balconies etc. At the moment I create the glass label, copy and paste it as many times as needed then go back and change the notes for each panel to give it a different number.


Is it possible to paste a note so the number changes to the next number each time you paste it? I realize this can be done if you link it to the part file name or its part number in the BoM, however the way we draw our glass will often have multiple panels in each part to speed up the modeling process.


Would this be achievable with a macro?


Any ideas welcome, thanks.
