    Default Automatically Generate Total Sheet and Total Subset Sheet Numbers

    Summary: Ability to automatically generate sheet index numbers, sheet sub-set index numbers, total sheets and total subset sheets numbers.

    Description: I'd like the AutoCAD Sheet Set Manager to automatically generate sheet index numbers, sheet sub-set index numbers as well as total sheets and total subset sheets, without needing a computer programmer to write code. I'd also like the Sheet Set Manager to allow current sub-set custom properties.

    How Used: I read the paper on filling in the gaps in Sheet Set Manager, and it was over my head. I'm a Civil Engineer, not a computer programmer. All the projects that I work on require sheet indexing, and I am perplexed as to why this wasn't default from the very beginning. Imagine if Microsoft had told Word users to number each page manually. Creating a Current Sheet Custom property and filling it in manually, though easier than opening and editing each drawing, is a chore, especially if sheet index numbers are changing.
    Please AutoCAD, fill in the gaps in the Sheet Set Manager.

    Default Re: Automatically Generate Total Sheet and Total Subset Sheet Numbers

    Creating a custom field to hold the total number of sheets is pretty trivial. You really only have to do it once, in your sheet set template, then it will be there each time. What we really need is for this field to update automatically.
