XS_​DRAWING_​PLOT_​FILE_​NAME_​W

Category in Advanced options dialog box: Printing

Use this advanced option to define print filenames for single part drawings.

Enter any combination of text and options:

NAME

NAME.-

NAME.

DRAWING_NAME

DRAWING_NAME.

DRAWING_NAME.-

REVISION

DRAWING_REVISION

REV_MARK

REVISION_MARK

DRAWING_REVISION_MARK

REV

TITLE

DRAWING_TITLE

UDA:<drawing user-defined attribute>, for example, UDA:DRAWING_USERFIELD_1

TPL:<template attribute>, for example TPL:TITLE1 or TPL:TITLE2

<variable>?- <text>

The question mark (?) can be used for querying if a <variable> is set, and if it does, the <text> after the question mark will be printed. See the second example below.

This advanced option is role specific. When the type SYSTEM(ROLE) is in use, the default value is used. When the type MODEL(ROLE) or DRAWING(ROLE) is in use, you can change the value, which is then the same for all users in the current model.

Examples

%DRAWING_NAME.% - %DRAWING_TITLE%%DRAWING_REVISION? - Rev %%REVISION_MARK%

If you define %DRAWING_NAME.% - %DRAWING_TITLE%%DRAWING_REVISION? - Rev %%REVISION_MARK%, a .pdf file with a name P1 - PLATE - Rev A.pdf will be created from a single part drawing, for example, where

DRAWING_NAME. = P1, this is the part position without punctuation.

DRAWING_TITLE = PLATE, this is the name that you have entered in the Name box in drawing properties.

DRAWING_REVISION = empty, if there are no revisions, or a numeric value 1, 2, 3, etc according to the revision selected in Rev.No. in the Revision handling dialog box. The actual value is not written in the plot file name, but the text after the question mark (?).

- Rev is the text to be printed, if DRAWING_REVISION gives a value. If DRAWING_REVISION does not give a value, the text - Rev will not be printed. In this case, the plot file name will not have REVISION_MARK either because the drawing has not been revised.

REVISION_MARK = A, because A has been defined as the revision mark in the Revision handling dialog box.
