Annotation: delete multiple sheets

Hi 

We need to delete multiple sheets in Annotation.

We have Models with up to 35 Drawing-Sheets.

 

Many thanks

Re: Annotation: delete multiple sheets

I tried to delete multiple sheets that I selected on the structure browser.

But I could delete only one sheet.

Probably I think it is the specification of Delete Sheet command.

Re: Annotation: delete multiple sheets

Hi. I can confirm this. Even if you multi-select several sheets in a Drawing Browser tab, you can delete only one sheet a time (by using "Delete" option in the right-click menu). And I didn't find any other way how to do it. Well, I guess you have to press "Delete" 35 times.

Re: Annotation: delete multiple sheets

I have a thought.

 

I had written a lisp program that will individually create a PDF from each sheet in a drawing.  Perhaps, with some work, this program can be re-written to delete individual sheets.

 

I am assuming that you do not want all sheets delete.  So perhaps, this program would create check boxes based on the number of sheets, and you check the box for each sheet you would want deleted.

 

I have attached the lisp file as a reference.

Hey Thomas.

 

That is a great idea! How exactly does it work? Do you need to load it in the "customize" directory to have it load in the toolbox? Also, does it just look at the sheet number?
