Display Sheet Layer Name of Sheet somewhere?

Recommended Posts

Is there some cool way of having a document put some sort of text somewhere on the sheet that labels the sheet layer name? I have a co worker who uses the date stamp tool and in a perfect world he would like that to have a field in there that displayed the sheet layer name on it. Or maybe a field in a title block that you can link text to a record, but that record value would be the sheet layer name. Or any other potential idea someone has or uses to achieve this.

Anyone out there have any good ideas on a way to do this?

Check out the included default title blocks. There are some that will do this. You need to create a title block record that references _SN and _SD. Search for Custom Title Block in the Vectorworks help for a detailed explanation.


Note that Automatic Drawing Co-ordination needs to be turned on under File>Document Settings>Document Preferences.
