I have been searching on the forum, but haven't found a clear solution for my issue yet. I would be pleased when someone can help me.
With info of this forum I have managed to create a working macro which extract a product number and product name uit of the file name and place it in the custom properties. Yes!
I now want the macro to automatically start the macro, preferably on rebuild.
I have found 3 options:
- Starting SW with a shortcut to start the macro.
This option is easy, but won't work when opening a part from File Explorer. It will also not do when I outsource work, because I have them to change their shorcut too and not evereone is fond of that.
- Using equation triggered macro's
I think that is what I need, but it seems that I cannot reproduce in SW 2018 what is explaned in the nice Youtube video from CADSharp. In the video SW cries a bit after importing the text file, but permits it. SW 2018 seems not to permit it anymore
- Using a addin
This sounds a bit complex for the simple purpose I have for the macro. Besides that I was just happy that I managed to get a macro working and I am a bit discouraged considering investigating addins. In other words: I almost know nothing about addins and I hope that it can stay that way :-)
I would be pleased to get some support to get my simple macro started automatically. The macro itself may be embedded, but a link is also ok.
Thanks in advance!
