Next / Previous Sheet Number Field

287 Views, 5 Replies

I've seen this question asked a couple of different times, but no answer was ever given.

 

I am using Sheet Set Manager. I can use a field that will enter the sheet number on each layout. I am looking for a way to have a field use this number and minus 1 or add 1 to get the sheet before and sheet after the current sheet.

 

I see there is a way to use a diesel expression, but I don't know how to use this.

 

Thanks for any help

Doug

Create a field, use the "Formula" type, and "nest" the "current sheet number" inside this field, then add your "+1" to this. Here is a similar example, except I'm using an object property: http://cadpanacea.com/node/364

Now that is exactly what I needed. Works perfect.

 

sheet before current sheet:

%<\AcExpr (%<\_FldPtr 1780782352>%-1)>%

 

sheet after current sheet

%<\AcExpr (%<\_FldPtr 1780805744>%+1)>%

 

Thanks,

Doug

I also have sequential numbers that I use on sheets, where the starting number can vary. So I create a custom property to hold my 'starting number', then create multiple fields like this where the first one is +1, the next is +2, etc.
If the starting number changes, I change the custom property, then regen and everything updates.

Don't suppose you know of any way to have sheets runumber within sheet set manager based on order they are placed?

 

Example

I have 30 sheets and I add another sheet to the beginning. Or I move sheet 30 to sheet 5.  Now everything needs to be renumbered manually within sheet set manager.

 

Thanks,

Doug

Not built into SSM.
We use a 3rd party tool that renumbers the sheets from 1-?
