Hi there,

 

No, at least, not in the "File Properties" dialogue box,....but you can in the draft background sheet, by using the "%{File Name}" property text call out.

I have had a macro created for this ... thank you for the quick response

A macro was what came to my mind first, but thought it would be an overkill if a manual method or setting existed.

Could you tell if the macro you used is run for each file or its a batch process running on several files or a plugin ? Thanks.

not really sure ... I didn't make it ... had a programer at the company I work for look into it ... but it works for all types of files (par asm dft) and I just made a button on the ribbon bar that accesses the macro that I click after I name a files

Thanks for the update.

Was just trying to pick an idea for a new macro and this seems to be a good candidate.
