Recommended Posts

I have set my plan display section to auto for the second line but they do not show

the page of the layout that the section view has been sent to?

It should display in plan view exactly what you have filled out for the Label of your Layout Page Information.

Not the actual page number unless you have that filled out as the Label.

I thought there was a way to show what page no on the layout this section detail was put on if

the auto button for text below line was checked, not working for me?

If you do not have a numbering system for layout just put # in the Label: box of every page and it will automatically number your pages sequentially and put that number into the camera call out as well as change them automatically if you move pages around.  But you must put something in the Label: box even if you do it manually.

Thanks Chopsaw, this seemed to work.  I have not been using page layout box before.

But i put the # symbol into the layout page information but somehow one of my sheets

now is missing my titleblock from page 0, any idea why?

Yes, take a look in the same Layout Page Information DBX for that page that is giving you a problem and make sure that it is using the Page 0 "Page Template" under Page Template Options.

 

Also now that I think of it maybe worthwhile to put in a suggestion if you like so that if for people like you who don't use the Layout Label that the camera callouts should pick up the default layout page number without having to fill in the Label and then of course for the rest of us a manual entry  would override.

Thanks, i did not know you could have multiple page layouts for different pages, this way i could have a 

cover sheet without title block etc..

 

I am watching video on layouts now to learn more.

 

Thanks.

Yup always new stuff to discover with Chief.  Funny how it works that way and mistakes lead to new discoveries.
