Drawing Table Parameters to create a Table-of-Contents

Drawing Table Parameters to create a Table-of-Contents

Drawings with multiple sheets need a Table of Contents (TOC) - just like any other multi-page document.   Report repeat region parameters would need to be established for just this purpose.  A Table of Contents should be just as easy to implement as a Bill of Materials.  A parametric Table of Contents would update any time a sheet is added, or is re-named or moved in sequence.

PTC would need to add sheet dependent variables that could be used for the repeat region so you can have individual sheet descriptions in the title block.

Need a method of adding parameters for each sheet to drive the descriptions.

Currently, we use the same descriptions on all sheets of a multi-sheet drawing.

There is already a sheet dependent variable called "sheet_name".  Seems to me it shouldn't be too difficult to add other sheet dependent parameters (such as 'sheet_description', 'sheet_status', 'sheet_model', etc.), perhaps by right-clicking on the sheet tab at the bottom of the detailing window and selecting a new option to 'Edit Sheet Parameters'.
