I am trying to learn how I can get Material Lists or Schedules with Material List info, to export to Layout. I am trying to add some value to my drawings to make it easier for my guys to do takeoff's. For example; create a schedule that shows, Material Type, Qty, Description, etc. and then export that to Layout. I have found that although we can generate a Material List with this information, the Material List (AFAIK) can't be exported to Layout. If that is indeed true, then how can we get this information to show up on a Schedule? Specifically, I am trying to get my roof shingles to show up on a Custom Schedule. Any ideas on how I can tackle this?

I have a total of 14 possible layout pages I use. I have my layout pages defined using the # sign. On my "0" layout page I use %page.print% for the page number and %numpages% to get the total number of pages. I don't always use all 14 pages but would rather not delete them from the client layout file in case they decide they want additional pages later. So, as it is, even if I just need six pages the number 14 displays (see attachment). Is there a way to get that macro to reflect the number of pages used in my layout schedule or the number of actual pages that I will print? Also, is there an easier way to select which pages display in the layout table than opening each layout page and editing each one's layout page information (like a list of layout pages you could pull up and select/deselect the two checkboxes on this DBX?
i have a Library of Ruby macro that was custom coded for me few years back.

But unfortunately, iam unable reach the original programmer to redo this project.
im looking for someone that could help and take over and upgrade this Library.

I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to display room occupancy load, using a text color tag.
For example if a room was 100 ft.² and the fire occupancy load is 7 ft.² per person able to take the (room area divided by 7)
the formula would also need to round up or down to the nearest whole number
Here is the "Callout Specification" dialog window
Here is the "callout tag" with the formula, but I would like it to be modified so instead it show the red text or something similar
