Sheet Sets - Subset Custom Properties

289 Views, 5 Replies

Hi, I would have thought this would be asked fairly often, but I couldn't find the answer.

 

I want to have sheet set attributes that work at the subset level.

Is this possible?

 

Basically, we create a new sheet set (.dst file) for every project number.

Within that project number there are multiple reports generated.

We use different subsets to organize these reports within the sheet set.

The issue arises when one report is finalized and another is not - so the draft attribute value changes.

 

Any help / ideas would be great.

Thanks

 

Using Civil 3D 2012 - if that matters.

I don't believe there is (that would be very useful though).

 

Submit it as a suggestion for a future version and we might see it happen someday:

Thanks for the response. Any response at this point is good.

 

Having said that, I believe the answer is probably to use something like SSMPropEditor, as it allows you to change multiple SS attributes at the same time. So you can add the Draft (or any other attribute) at the drawing level, then change them all at once.

 

To me AutoDesk dropped the ball on that one.

 

Cheers

If you found the response above mine too random and aimless then look here (it's not free, another thing they forgot to mention): http://www.jtbworld.com/SSMPropEditor.htm
