Numbering

Numbering

Win32 and 64, English

A>V>C>
Name the drawing objects as sequential numbers. Save time when working with plugins Lay, Sawing Table, Mark, Smart Leader.

General Usage Instructions

The numbering command works in the same way as the Data Table command. It extracts data from selected drawing objects, creates a table, groups and sorts this table, and only then writes the row numbers of this table to the Name (or Kind, or Info) of the object. The only difference with the Data Table is that the resulting table is not saved anywhere. But the numbers remain in the specified property of the object and can be used by all A>V>C> commands.
The program can use drawing objects selected before calling the AvcNum command. In this case, you will not see any prompts or options. If nothing is selected, the program will ask you to select objects. You can select one or several viewports on the sheet - the program will process all objects visible in them.
Pay attention to the command line before choosing the details - the current numbering settings will be indicated there, including the start number.
The objects you select can be discarded by filters. Do not worry if annotations and other unnecessary objects fall into the selection frame - the program will work only with suitable objects specified in the filtering conditions.
After running the program, the selection can be saved - use the  A>V>C> Common Options.
In the selection prompt, you will see the command options:
  • SwitchStyle: Quickly switch between presets by number.
  • TUNE: Opens the program settings dialog
Then the program starts working:
  • Compiles a list of objects to be processed. These will be the objects of the drawing you have selected, as well as objects extracted from blocks (if configured to extract from blocks).
  • Discards inappropriate objects according to the filtering settings. If the program writes to the command line that there is no suitable object, then just change the filtering conditions.
  • If the command is configured to process solids, then the metric update procedure will be invoked for each solid. In the process of work, the program outputs to the command line the obtained sizes of solids.
  • Retrieves the object properties for all substitutions for the grouping and for all configured sort columns.
  • Concatenates identical strings (if required). Moreover, the program can check the geometric differences of objects and not combine them together, even when all the columns are the same.
  • Groups and sorts objects.
  • Substitutes object properties and table row number into the numbering template and stores the resulting string in the specified Name (or Kind, or Info) property.
Watch the console - all program messages are displayed there.

Version History

Version Number Version Description

2021.08.00

Substitutions: New formats for integer ROMAN - Roman numerals, ALPHABET - letters in the English alphabet, CYRILLIC - letters in the Russian alphabet, X - hexadecimal number. Substitutions: New formats for floating point numbers depending on the regional settings of Windows: G, E, F, P, C, N, D, R, X (like C# double formats). Substitutions: Now 0 is always displayed as 0 and not as an empty string, whatever the formatting. Substitutions: When the substitution value is unknown, then "n/a" is always displayed (previously, in some cases, an empty string was displayed) New substitutions: - Outline rectangle size for all drawing objects: extentsx, extentsy, extentsz - Outline rectangle coordinates for all drawing objects: extminx, extminy, extminz and extmaxx, extmaxy, extmaxz - Coordinates in current User Coordinat System: basexucs, baseyucs, basezucs - Endpoint and Midpoints coordinates for all curves: endx,endy,endz, minx, midy, midz - Endpoint and Midpoints in current User Coordinat System: endxucs, endyucs, endzucs, minxucs, midyucs, midzucs AvcNum: The numbering command has been completely redesigned. - Any drawing objects except blocks are now numbered. - Writes data not only to Name, but also to Kind or Info. - Forms of numbers can now be Roman numerals and letters of the Russian alphabet. - Can substitute any properties of the drawing object, not just the line number. Including, you can substitute the name of the owner block. - Has separate styles. Not use the LAY style. - Filtering of objects is configured. - Sorting (numbering order) is configured. AvcOptions: New Numbering tab.
