Sheets PageUp and PageDown - Macro

[ Edited ]

I had asked this question sometime back in this forum and also saw a recent thread about using the PageDn and PageUp keys to cycle through sheets in Solid Edge Draft just as in Excel.

 

Download these two macros:

1. SheetNext.exe

2. SheetPrevious.exe

 

Extract the exe and image files to a single folder and attach them to two button anywhere on the ribbon in a lesser crowded area.

 

 Read a tutorial to call macros from ribbon buttons with images.

 

Assign keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+PageUp and Ctrl+PageDown to the two ribbon buttons.

The above tutorial shows keyboard assignment too.

 

 

Note: Press the actual PageUp key in the customize dialog and not type 'P a g e  U p' - I did this silly thing  Robot Embarassed

Then forget about the buttons and start using the shortcuts Ctrl+PageUp and Ctrl+PageDn.

 

You will appreciate:

1. When the last working sheet is active, PageUp takes you to the first working sheet. It cycles through all working sheets continuously and does not stop when the last sheet is reached - unlike Excel !

Same with PageDn which cycles through sheets backwards - relentlessly.

 

So if you are at sheet 8 of 10 working sheets and want to go, to say, sheet 2, keep pressing PageUp to reach sheet 2 faster than pressing PageDown several times.

Same with PageDn.

  

Foot notes:

• Written to Work with Working sheets only - no pun intended !

• Not available in SW, Inventor, Creo and other such history-only programs.
