Drawing Views Naming

Hi All,


I was wondering if it was possible to make my drawing views more streamlined.

Currently, when I add a drawing view, the part number and scale is pulled from the part and scale chosen. So this is good; but I would like to get the styles editor to add the actual view of the part into its name.


For example, if I choose the top view, the naming should look like the following:






So basically I'd like to know if its possible to pull that information and display it in the naming text box. I would assume this is possible as all the other parts are possible, I dont see why this isnt an automatic default.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Looking through Inventor I couldn't figure out how to do this.  So I did a search and found the following thread.


They are using either VBA Macro or iLogic to change the view names.  I haven't messed around with this so I don't know how well it works.  Hope this helps.
