Publish dialog retains last published sheet layers - Why ?

Recommended Posts

Ive recently changed from using VWX 2014 to VWX 2017 (both Architect)


I use the File > Publish command to batch export PDFs. 


In 2014 each time i use the File > Publish command it gave me an option of my sheet layers on the left hand side and i could move the ones i wanted over to the right hand side. 


But in 2017 it seems to auto populate the right hand side of the page with the files i published in the last publish run. Any ideas why this is and how i can get it to behave like it did in 2014 ?

Hi Sam

I think this is intended as a time-saving aid, as many will be publishing the same set over and over again.

There isn't a way to restore the 2014 functionality as such (that I am aware of), but you could explore using Saved Sets of different collections of sheets, which you can then rapidly select using the Set to Publish pop-up menu at the top of the dialog.

Hi Sam,


As Tamsin said this was made on purpose, because of Saved Sets. But you can use "<<" button as on the attached image to clear the publish list.




Best regards,
