How can you attribute the layout # into the title block?
« on: March 24, 2009, 08:31:25 AM »
I have a title block with attributes already, but would like for the value to automaticaly be there.  In the title block I have "Sheet # of #" and I would like those "#'s" to have a value in relation to the actual layout tab and total layouts.  Any help would be much appreciated!!!

I think most people are using FIELDs.
Can you replace the attribute with a Field?

Otherwise you would need to build a reactor or a lisp that ran during startup.

set a field for ctab.

copy paste this in to that attribute

%<\AcVar ctab>%

it will show whatever the layout tab name is then.

It ended up wanting to use this:  %<\AcVar ctab \f "%tc1">%
but regardless it worked great!  I hadn't toyed with "fields" yet...  Thanks guys!
