Creating PDF - sorting sheets

Hello, I have a multi-page drawing that I'm trying to create a PDF of.  When I go to export the PDF, it orders the sheets 1,10,11,12, etc. and then does 2, 21,22...   Is there a way to set up the export PDF creation process so that I don't have to reorder them myself?  Thanks

Hi @s_hightower,

 

Which version of NX are you using and what do you have the Sort Order set to in the Customer Defaults?  In NX11 it is set to Alphabetical by default.

From the Customer Defaults, select "Gateway > PDF Export" and see if changing the 'Sorting Order' to 'Numerical' makes a difference for you.

 

Regards, Ben

Hi @BenBroad, We're using NX 10.0.3.5.  

 

I selected Gateway and noticed that "Gateway" is now part of the Title/Header at the top of the screen.  I can't find the "Gateway > PDF Export".  All I can find is "File > Export > PDF".   It's possible that I'm just overlooking the command.  Any recommendations?

Thanks for your help.

I've changed default to numerical. When exporting I still get the 1,10,11...2,20,21..... Smiley Sad

Did you restart NX after making the change in the customer defaults?
