Standards file

Good day all,

 

I use a standards file to check my drawings.  Some of my layers are named as such:

 

layername.1

layername.2

layername.3...and so on

 

I never know how many layers I'll need per drawing, so, the ".1" could go to ".32" or ".99" or whatever.  I'd like to not need to type each and every layer name into the standards file 99 times.  Is there a way to force the .dws file to accept "layername*"?  Meaning anything after "layername" is accepted by the .dws, regardless of what number follows.

 

Anyone?

 

Cheers!

That's the limitation of a "standards" file, it must contain everything you consider a standard without exceptions.

By chance are your Standards File and the Template file a perfect match? it may help in the long run with your quest.
