Sort Order of Model Views in Sheet Set Manager

728 Views, 4 Replies

Is there a way to set the sort order in Sheet Set Manager for the Model Views tab?  Seems like a few releases ago it was alphabetical - now its random and almost impossible to locate a specific drawing in a large project.

 

Tried changing MAXSORT and it did not have an effect.

 

Thanks

Absolutely. I can't find anything! Surely there must be a setting or a fix? Or is nobody using SSM?

We just completed a 532 sheet project using SSM and had no troubles finding drawings in the sheet set..... that being said, you could always create subsets of one sort or another to help divide up your set and find things easier (we've done that from time to time and it helps somewhat).

I have the same issue with Model View, it is not maintaining the order of the folders in the directory structure which are alphabetized.

No, the OP is talking about the drawings listed on the Model Views tab, not the Sheet List tab.
