To update all sheets try this mapkey:

mapkey us ~ Command ProCmdDwgSelectAllSheets ;~ Command ProCmdDwgUpdateSheets;

It selects all sheets and updates.

To export all sheets, under the Export environment for DXF select Tab "Sheets" and option "all sheets as paperspace".

## Re: How to update all sheets automatically?

Please clarify what you are updating.

Normally all parts and assemblies in memory update in real-time.

Sometimes the models in drawings require regeneration. That is not sheet dependent.

## Re: How to update all sheets automatically?

Hi,

Actually after making the drawing from some assembly whenever I changed something in assembly or in part ,in the drawing file it will not automatically update i have to update it by "Update Sheets " symbol.

and next thing i have around 18-25 sheets in one .drw file and i have to convert it to dxf for some internal reasons.

so for this i have to seperately make dxf file of each sheet.

Hope you understand .

Hi,

## Re: How to update all sheets automatically?

hi,

to use config.sup you have to create it manually. the only proper place for config.sup is <load_point>\Common Files\M***\text\ folder. What is more, mentioned settings are hidden -so you have to add them in text editor.

## Re: How to update all sheets automatically?

Be careful. "enable_auto_drawing_update" and the other related options are for VERY DIFFERENT PURPOSES than what you're asking for. These options are used to "update" a drawing that was created in an earlier version to the methods used in the latest version. They have nothing to do with getting a drawing to update to geometry changes in the same version.

Instead, take a look at "auto_regen_views". Setting this to "yes" in any of your config.pro files will force Creo to automatically regenerate the drawing views every time you view them.

## Re: How to update all sheets automatically?

The way I update all sheets is to use shift+select sheet 1 thru sheet x. The I go to the review tab and select UPDATE SHEETS. If all sheets are selected, all sheets will be updated.

This is by no means automatic but with a drawing with that many sheets, you probably don't really want automatic view regeneration anyway.

We also have a config.pro option set disable automatic view regeneration: auto_regen_views NO . We set this due to large assemblies taking a long time to update on drawings.

I would create DXF files of multisheet drawings using a mapkey if I had to do it a lot. It is also not automatic, but it is much faster than individually making the selections per sheet.

## Re: How to update all sheets automatically?

is there an option save_display yes/no in your config.pro ?

If a drawing is saved under this option

- yes means the drawing will be opened as saved. You have to update your drawing, regenerating wont help.

- no means drawing will be regenerated on opening.

## Re: How to update all sheets automatically?

Just using mapkeys, I don't see how to do it.

My best suggestion is to build a big mapkey that activates sheet one and export to dxf, activates sheet two and repeat....

Attached is a mapkey that does this for 15 sheets, you can add more just copy/pasting the lines and changing the numbers.

I think this will solve your problem
