Drawing Index Page table question on page numbers


Recommended Posts

Good evening fellow CA'ers


How can I get the layout page number (main drawing index) to show my actual page number like A-1, P-1, etc.. and not just 1, 2, 3, etc? Is there a macro that can be put into the pages label to do this?


I'm working in X9. As always any help would be appreciated...

Hello Eric. Its good to hear from you again. I hope all's well.


I did a search prior to posting as well as read the x9 help button and search the CA web site. My forums search only turned up 5 results which gave me some ideas.


I did resolve my issue. In the Layout Page Table box by turning on all the columns there it was under label. 


I appreciate your tip though. As allways Thank You

If you do a search for NCS United States National CAD Standard-V6 it should get you to a site with 4 pages of information regarding, in part, the layout page naming industry standards.


On the second page under Level 1 Discipline Designations it provides a list of categories and its letter designation.


Regarding, what I think your question was, for A-1 ect.. you would put A-# in the Layout, or whatever designation is appropriate.. 


Hope this is helpful.
