How to delete custom naming fields from the predefined list at Publish.

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know how to delete custom file names from the predefined list at the export option in Publish.

See attachment. I seem to be able to add but not delete. Any help appreciated.


Another question I have is if its possible to add the revision date to the file name at publish.

Again, any help appreciated.

cheers, Francois

Hello Francois,


You could do that by deleting the formula from the file "PublishItemNames.xml" in your user folder. However, be careful while editing this file and delete only formulas you have added.

In the next version, there will be functionality for doing this through the File Export Options dialog.


Best Regards,

Thanks Nikolay.

There is another bug as well. At publish II no longer can link the title block info. The filenames look like this now: Project ID-Status-Current Revision Number-BEGANE GROND P_0-003

Project ID is not found, neither S and CRN. And the sheet name is an old name and is not updated. I have restarted and changed the title blocks but to no effect. Any help appreciated.

Cheers, Francois
