    Default Export Layout Tab Names

    Hey everybody,
    I did a search already and didn't find anything related to what I'd like to do.

    What I want to do is export the name of a single layout tab or multiple layout tabs to a text file. The one thing I don't want to use is Sheet set Manager. I there a way to do this or am I SOL.

    Nothing built into acad, but lisp or vba can do it.

    Here is a quick routine to do this....

    Code:
    (setq fn (strcat (getenv "temp") "\\" "layoutlist.txt")
          fp (open fn "w")
    )      
    (vlax-for x
    	  (vla-get-Layouts
    	    (vla-get-ActiveDocument
    	      (vlax-get-acad-object)
    	    )
    	  )
              (princ (vla-get-Name x) fp)
              (princ "\n" fp)
    )
    (close fp)
    (startapp "notepad" fn)

    Is that code vba or lisp? How would I save it and activate it?

    Lisp.
    Copy it to Notepad.
    Save as a file like "listlayouts.lsp" - to a directory that is in your support file search path
    When you need to run it, just load it like this (load "listlayouts")

    Thanks R.K. I appreciate the info.

    Does it work with acad 2008 vanilla. I copied it and saved it in the support directory, but when i loaded it i got this error: ; error: no function definition: VLAX-GET-ACAD-OBJECT. Not savvy with lisp, so i have no idea what this means.

    Sorry about that. Add (vl-load-com) to the top of the file.
