2018 Drawing Export - Removing from predefined list

Recommended Posts

Hi All

Loving the improvements to title blocks in 2018. I especially love the ability to add revisions to the exported file names automatically.


I have two questions/comments though:

  1. How do I remove or edit a custom name from the predefined list [see attached screenshot]. I've added a few custom names whilst testing this out that I now don't want to stay in my list.
  2. Can we have more options for the data fields it can pull into the custom name? Surely it wouldn't be too difficult to all any field in the title block to be inserted into the file name?


Thanks in advance for your help.

In Vectorworks 2018 the predefined list is stored in your user folder.  You may remove custom name from the predefined list when you delete Plug-ins\Common\Data\PubliemNames.xml file.


You could add Vectorworks enhancements for your requests.
