a script for file path on plots?

Recommended Posts

maybe this is possible within the program already- but has anyone written a script for printing the file path on sheets? This is helpful when the number of sheets in a project gets up there (and helps with those who for some reason cannot follow server filing procedures).

I know this is possible in AutoCAD... something like:

Computer Name/Project Files/20-20/Building A/First Floor Plan etc...

I'm thinking that this would be easier in OS X (you know, with unix and all...)

(Mac OS 10.2.6, VW 10.1.2)

Try Vectordepot.com for it first.

i know since VW v8 there has been a date stamp object that will stamp the file name on the drawing.

but also there is a command in VW that will return the name of the file to a string variable.


that you could use to write your own.

i checked vectordepot, but no luck... i'm relatively new to writing scripts for VW, but i'll give it a try.

[edit]whoops- i did find something... it works great with VW10 thanks again [/edit]
