Can we replace %automatic_label% by default for plans sent to layout?

Recommended Posts

Alaskan son/Michael has been doing some of his famous one-on-one Macro teaching with me and I've managed to write my own super simple label macro.

Searched through 3 pages of search results and couldn't bring up the thread I remember reading about.

Is it possible to use my own macro in place of the automatic label for plans sent to layout without having to open up the label in layout and change it manually?

Here is the Macro:

Layout Label.json

You can do this for a lot of labels by placing your custom macro into the default label, but currently we don't have a default label for layout boxes.  Until we do, I'm afraid you just have to do these one page at a time.

If I understand the question correctly, can’t you change the layout box label by renaming your plan view?

That's correct. 

  • Change the name of the view in the Plan(s) Project Browser. 
  • That name will then be the default Layout Box Label.

I also add the scale of the layout to the plan view title when I rename it.  It does a couple things.  Besides adding the scale to the layout box label, it is also a reminder what scale to use when sending the view.

Michael kind've pointed out what I was looking for- macros don't work when you put them in the plan view name that I know of
