I have a drawing with 15 sheets, everyone showing a different configuration,
how do I control in the title block to increasing sheets?
I believe that John Stoltzfus or Deepak Gupta have a macro for this.
Instead of using the sheet property to number your pages just make a different layout that will have a manual 1 of 1 set, that is how I do it.
There are at least two or three ways to do this w/o macro.
1. Save_As new drawing file. Delete all sheets except what is kept. Then the only sheet will be 1 of 1. Repeat for each sheet.
2. Edit Sheet Format (assuming that's where your text in question is located). Right click on text and select Edit_Text_In_Window. Replace the text $PRP:"SW-Total Sheets(Total Sheets)" with the character 1. Replace the text $PRP:"SW-Current Sheet(Current Sheet)" with the character 1. This removes the parametric and replaces it with text. Close Sheet Format. Propagate this Sheet Format change to other sheets by either:
a) Repeat process above for each sheet.
b) File > Save Sheet Format... and save it to a location. Personally I'd place it within a Supporting Documents folder within the Project Folder, but location is only temporary, so Desktop works just as well. Then in Properties of each subsequent sheet, load the saved sheet format and apply it. Repeat this process for each sheet. Note that this will only work well if the sheet formats were all identical in the first place, so that you are not overwriting individual differences.
Option 2 is exactly what I do. Much easier than anything else.
If you want that note to always read "Sheet 1 of 1", then it's very simple, and you don't need a macro. Just edit your sheet format, double-click the note (or notes), delete the numerals that are there now (since they're linked to the sheet count), and manually enter "1" in both places. Save the sheet format. Now if you Reload the sheet format it will update in existing sheets. If you always want this then you'll need to Reload the sheet format in your drawing template and save it also.
If this is just a one-time thing for this Drawing I'd suggest saving the sheet format to a different name, then change to that sheet format for all existing sheets. If you have questions about any of this What's the difference between a sheet format and drawing template? might help.
Thanks for the mention Dan Pihlaja - yes I do have an awesome macro, written by Leon Wurr - This macro is very unique because it's designed for Cover Sheets in a Multiple Sheet Drawing File. The way this macro works is it looks for the word "Cover" in the Sheet Tab, if it's there it will skip over that page and if it's not then it will start or continue the Sheet 1 of 15 to Sheet 15 of 15...
See the attached Macro.
thanks for sharing the macro,
after running the macro I was expecting to see SHEET 1 OF 1 on every drawing
instead that just kind of deleted the "SHEET x OF x" lettering, is that ok?
please see pics.
Juan Pelayo - Somewhere it put down the Sheet 1 of 15, Sheet 2 of 15.... etc..
You may need to edit the macro to make it work like you want it to, here I want consecutive page numbers
