I am doing an assembly drawing with multiple sheets and would like to note bullet/numbers to propagate from sheet 1 to sheet 2 automatically. Can not find a solution for this. Is there a way to do this?
Not that I'm aware of. My practice is to number notes 1a, 1b, etc, with the numerals linked to the sheet number. It works pretty well for me, but I don't know if it's an option for you.
thanks for response. Definitely it is a good idea, but unfortunately, it is not our practice to make notes like this. Our support suggested to use modified BOM table and split the table and transfer the split to next page. It looks promising.
Let's see how it will end up.
I don't think that you can do it automatically.
However, you CAN get the numbering to start wherever you want.
If you have a note with numbers 1-5 on sheet 1 and you create a new note on sheet 2 and you want it to start with 6, then you can do the following:
Double click on your note on sheet 2 and then RMB on the numbers and select Paragraph Properties
Then start your numbering from where you want it:
Pretty sure that is the best you can do without a macro.
Manually changing the first number is the way how we do now. Problem with that solution is if you want to add or remove any note, then you have to renumber rest of the sheets, and this is prone to human errors and we want to avoid that.
Unfortunately, I am not familiar with writing a macro. Maybe I should start.
This macro may be helpful for you as you go down that route. It demonstrates a few ways to read the contents of a note, including the "behind the scenes" SWML language that defines how the note is displayed.
Just run the macro, select a note, and hit the "Get New Note" button. All the text boxes will populate. You can edit the contents of the PropertyLinkedText box and hit the replace button to see what effect your changes to the SWML have on the output of the note.
Vote for SPR 964608: Automatic sequential note numbering across multiple pages. for a chance at seeing it in a future release.
How do I vote on an SPR in the Knowledge Base?
Guys, thank you very much for support. Didn't know that vote for this functionality exists. I've voted for. Let's hope we will see it sometime. Till then have to roll my sleeves and start digging into macro world.
Josh, thanks for the file. Will look into it.
