Sheet Index
« on: September 15, 2020, 02:46:36 PM »
Is there a way to use LISP to add a Sheet Index from the Sheet Set Manager? I have been starting to look around, but haven't found much so far.

No, just the standard right click on the sheets and select insert sheet index, but a lisp equivalent.

AutoLISP has no access to SSM so you need to use any of the .NET programming languages.

If you get bored there’s this little thang, cheers.
Yeah, there is that one (I have used it as a base for another tool I use), I can always roll my own version I suppose, but I was trying to avoid that.....LOL

I was able to setup a sheet set file, wblock the sheet index and import it into another project.  When you bring in the block you have to set it to explode when inserting (not after).  After you bring it in, you have to edit the sheetset table to use the current sheet set.

I followed you right up to the last bit, how do you modify it to use the current sheet set?

Click on the first cell, not in it.  Right click->Sheet List Table->Edit Sheet List Table Settings...
Then in the Sheet List Table click on the Subsets and Sheets tab.  You then select from there.

This is something that I have not found in any of the forums.  It only took about 10 years of using Sheet Sets to figure this out.

Interesting, now can we find a way to edit it in LISP?

Unfortunately, this pesky little thing called work got in the way.   :2funny:

I can only get the option to display in the right-click menu if I click inside the cell, and even then, it will not let me make changes.

This is incredible, Michael.
