Display Document number

Hello,

 

I keep the drawing number and file name seperate for the part / assembly files.

I was looking through the options / helpers and have seen that the document name formula can also have the document number.

I only issue the number when the document is released.

so thought the display would be helpful to see which items were released while working on the model

 

So i used [Document Number] - [Filename]

This, as expected gives me the drawing number and filename in the display.

And seems exactly what i was after,

 

However,

While designing the part / assembly and the number is not completed the display shows :-

Document Number - test.par

I was hoping that the first bit would just be blank?

any ideas?

 

Even just a ? would be better than the whole Document Number text

 

Merry Christmas

 

Regards Kevin

Hi @kevin_parker

 

 

the only way I can imagine as a fast solution would be, that all Your documents have a dot "." in the Document Number field instead of nothing

 

You simply can put it into Your templates and so the text in Your pathfinder will be exactly as You want it.
