Egan Sheet Sequence

Win64, English

Egan BIM Resources
This app renumbers views on sheets to according to a custom user-defined sequence.

General Usage Instructions

Once you install the app, it is called on demand as required by the user.
You may need to change some of the default settings, and modify the default Sheet Sequence settings to suit your company. To do this, in Autodesk® Revit®, go to “Add-ins” tab > and then “Egan BIM Resources” panel. Select the slide-out menu at the bottom of the panel to display the “Sheet Sequence” menu. Select “Settings” to display the Settings form.
Select the “Set Active Starter Values” tab. From the “Starter Preset Name” grid at the bottom of the page, review the settings values. If you do not find a suitable preset, select the one closest to your required values and make changes as required.

Working with Active Starter Values

The Sheet Sequence app uses settings assigned to titleblock types as described below:
Starter Preset Name: A name for the group of settings that has meaning for your company. This is used for identity only; it is not actually used in the renumbering process.
For graphic depictions of Start Corner, Start Direction and Numbering Regions, see screenshots.
Start Corner: Select one of the four corners of the titleblock where the sequence will start numbering.
Start Direction: Select the direction you want the Sheet Sequence to start numbering.
Numbering Regions: The number of regions in the direction perpendicular to the start direction. For best results, this number should match your office standard for drawing modules.
Titleblock Height: The overall height of the titleblock, including margins.
Titleblock Width: The overall width of the titleblock, including margins.


Small adjustments to the sequence can be made by adjusting both opposing margins. For example, to move the sequence up 1/4”, make the top margin 1/4” smaller and the bottom 1/4” margin larger. Adjusting one margin at a time will change the size of the modules.
Left Margin: Left margin of the titleblock, includes staple area.
Right Margin: Right margin of the titleblock, including the designer, project and sheet identification blocks.
Top Margin and Bottom Margin: Top and bottom margins of the titleblock.

Assigning Active Starter Values

When you are satisfied with the values of a preset, select the button, “Load Values into Active Starter,” to make this your current starter Sheet Sequence assignment.
Now select the “Assign Sequence to Titleblocks” tab. To assign a sequence to a titleblock type, first select a Titleblock Family in the “Select Family” box. This will display all of the types of this family in the “Select Types” box. If you want to assign the Sequence to all types of the titleblock family, click the green double arrow, or, to assign the Sequence to just one type, select a type, and click the green single arrow.
Titleblock types that have a Sequence assigned to them are shown in the box “Assigned Titleblock Types.” To display the stored values of a type, select the type and the values will be displayed in the “Assigned Values” box.
To remove the assigned Sequence from a single type, highlight the type in the “Assigned Titleblock Types” box, and click the red single arrow. To remove all the assigned Sequence from all assigned titleblock types, click the red double arrow.
To change the values of an assigned titleblock type, remove the type from the assigned box and reassign.

Graphically Display Current Settings

To display the result of your current titleblock assignment, click the “Show Numbering Regions For The Titleblock In The Current View” button. Note that in order for this to work, you must have a titleblock visible in the current view.
When you are satisfied with your titleblock type assignments, click “OK,” to return to Revit. The Sheet Sequence app will now renumber views any sheet containing an assigned titleblock type.

Managing Starter Presets

To make it easier to transfer settings between projects and computers, the app has an import and export feature. On the Settings Form, select the “Set Active Start Values” tab.
Adjust the settings as desired, and as described above. Delete unused settings and add as many new ones as you want. Once you have the settings the way you want them, you can save and reuse the file.
Use the “Export” button to export the settings to a location on your local drive or a network location.
Use the “Import” button to import a file from a saved location.
The app will load a starter presets file when Revit is opened, using the box, “File to use for starter presets on application startup.” If no value is shown in this box, the app will use the default file that was installed with the app. If a file is shown in this box, the app will use that one. If the file is located on a network drive, all computers from the company can use the same file.

Network deployment

If you want to include a network version of the Starter Presets File in your deployment, you need to establish this setting before continuing.
Start by selecting a network location to store the Starter Value Presets file. Go to the Settings Form, and the “Set Active Starter Values” tab. Make the changes desired as described above. Then go to the “Network” tab and export the file.
Then, go to the “Set Active Starter Values” tab. In the “File to use for starter presets on application startup” box, browse to the folder where the Starter Value Presets file was exported. When your application settings are exported, they will now include a network location for the presets file.
Please see for additional information on the network deployment features of Egan BIM Resources apps.

The app includes support for a Network Floating License. See for more information.

This app is licensed by application, not by version. Your license will allow you to use any year’s version on your computer at any time, so the use of this app will not affect your Revit upgrade schedule.

Previous versions of the app are available on our website

Known Issues

This app will adjust for local globalization, but the user is responsible for adjusting presets to correspond to a local system. For example, you must include the correct decimal separator in the presets file.

A change in the internal storage system (Extensible Storage) was required between versions 2017 and 2018, but was not detected until 2019. Starting with version 2018, the Sequence applied to sheets may need to be reapplied.
