    Default Sheet list length

    Is it possible to have ADT generate a sheet list that can adjust to the available length on the sheet? For example, I have 8" of depth, but 24" of width available for a list of 70 sheets.

    While I haven't use the generate sheet list tool yet, you could always place the sheet list object in model space and viewport it in with multiple viewports to get what you want.
    We have to do this in with our excel file that we convert via a 3rd party app called spanner.

    Thumbs up Re: Sheet list length

    I use the table function of the sheet list and when I have a list longer than the sheet I copy the table and delete the rows I don't need in each table.

    Yes, it seems like alot of work, but then again I don't generate a sheet list that often. I also add the consultants sheet indexes as extra rows. That works well because the additional rows are formated matching the existing table.

    Currently what we do here is close to that.
    We start our sheet list in excel. Which works very well. This way we can have our consulants just send us the excel file with all of their sheets on it. This also allows us to help coordinate what sheets were issued at what point in time for the entire project. Several columns after the issue date, we also can list how complete we are with that sheet and how complete we are with the overall sets for our Project Manger so we can figure out how much more time we think we need. This proved to be a very useful tool on the larger projects. I couldn't imagine trying to do this with ADT on some of our larger projects. Our average sets end up being around 500+ sheets for all trades. We had one project with over 7000 sheets between arch, struct, and mep systems.
