manipulate attributes in drawings by changing the paper space tabs

Good day,
I am new to the forum as a switch from ACAD. My first question: I have seen a way in ACAD to manipulate attributes in drawings by changing the paper space tabs. So if I rename the paper space tab, the drawing header name also changes in the drawing for example. Is there this possibility in Bricscad? I am looking forward to your answers. Greeting RalfB

  • Yes, adding fields to attributes works in BricsCAD. In this case, you would need to reference the CTAB system variable to print out the layout name. You can also use diesel macros if you need to process the name further, e.g. $(substr, $(getvar, CTAB), 1,10) to include only a part of the string.

  • You may want to look into renaming layout tabs where you would shuffle the layouts order, or moving the layout order to reflect the layout name.

    eg 1 2 3 4 5 now 1 3 4 2 5 but still want 1 2 3 4 5.
