JTB Sheet Set Renumber

JTB Sheet Set Renumber

Win32 and 64, English

JTB World Inc.
Quickly renumber and insert the total number to the sheet set to show them up in fields [Sheet number]/[Total Number] in your title block.

General Usage Instructions

There are 2 commands you can run from the command line or from the ribbon button on Add-ins (or Plug-ins) tab

Firstly, it is the command SheetSetRenumberSetup. It will ask you the sheet set's custom property name to assign the total number. Then, it will ask you the sheet's custom property name to assign the sheet number. If you want to use the sheet's number field directly, enter "Number" or "Sheet Number". Other available common properties are also ok, like "Title", "Description", "Category", "Purpose", "Revision", but they are unlikely to be used in this case.

Next, run command SheetSetRenumber. If your drawing is already associated with a sheet set dst file, the dst file is selected straightforward. Otherwise, the app will ask you to browse a dst file.

After a click, the total number and sheet numbers are all updated.

Finally, you can extend the Autodesk® AutoCAD® command line text window to see the log report. What the total number is; which custom property is found, and get updated; which custom property is not found, etc. All are in the log report texts.

If a property is not found, you have to go back to the first step with SheetSetRenumberSetup to enter the correct sheet set and/or sheet custom property name.

If everything is ok, the SheetSetRenumberSetup command will remember your preferences. You don't have to run it again.
