Hi all.

I'm sure there is an obvious answer to this, but I can't get it!

 

How do I set up Plan Set groups to auto label page numbers to go A1.1- A1.2, A2.1- A2.2 , A3.1- A3.2, etc?

 

Any help is much appreciated.

I have not figured out how to add decimal page numbers.  

 

This is the best I can do for a drawing schedule.  Lucky the local bldg dept let's us send in residentials like this... not so much for commercial, though.

This is the only way that I was able to come close to what you wanted.

 

Create a New Plan Set; you’ll have to add a page, but delete it after the plan set is created; because you can't create a Group until you have a Plan Set to put it in. Right click on the Plan Set left click on “Add Group” , name it what ever you want, the devil seems to be in the in the “Prefix”, you have to put a period at the end of the prefix. You have to create a new group for each page, A1.1, A2.1; When you add a new page under A1 after A1.1 the next page will be A1.2

 

Maybe someone can add something to this after they see my post.

Trying to get my first plan set out and wrestling with the drawing schedule. I used groups to get the page numbers to increment properly but get the group name showing up like the example above.

So, a couple of things -

1) I don't want the group title, just the drawing number and title. Why can't I have this?

2) The order of text then number is backwards to me. You can't change this. Why not?

3) What's with the line at the end of the text going towards the page number. No other schedule does this. I don't want this.

A number of things in SP are hard coded and not editable. This is one example which needs some flexibilty.

 

The other pet peeve of mine is that the underline of the drawing title can't be extended to the width of the drawing. I know I could just draw an additional line but that defeats the purpose of having automation of certain things.
