automatically update sheets

automatically update sheets

Create a drawing option that provides some of the functionality of the hidden drawing option "update_sheets" when set to ALL.  This hidden option cannot be saved and does not persist beyond the current session.  However, when active it updates sheets immediately upon essentially any action by the user.

Have you looked at the config option 'auto_regen_views'?  It is set to yes by default and I thought did what you are asking.

Also, I'm not sure why you wouldn't want this option to be saved beyond this session.  That would be contrary to the way config options work today.  If you only want it for one session, simply set the option and don't save it to your config file.  It will not return when you restart.

Thanks Doug but negative on "auto_regen_views".  All the testing I've done shows no change in behavior for updating and this includes "enable_auto_regen_views" set to YES.  I believe these settings auto update the model views when changes are made to the model - but haven't completely verified this so can't striclty claim to know what I'm talking about.  I do know it has no effect on instant updating of sheets.

Also, I may have been unclear in my description.  I would like the option to be permanent.  The second part of my post was describing the current behavior of the hidden option "update_sheets".
