Applied Parameters: Action=ProjectSystemParameters
This command is used to access the Sheet Numbering for Project dialog. This dialog allows you to quickly number the constituent schematic sheets in the active design project. Sheet and Document Numbering allows you to take control over the sheet designation and store them as parameters within the respective schematic documents. Special strings (=SheetNumber, =DocumentNumber, =SheetTotal) can then be used to expose these values on the sheet (in the sheet's title block, for example) as text objects.
This command relates to the numbering of the logical sheets. To number the compiled sheets (the physical instances of sheets), use the Annotate Compiled Sheets command
This command is accessed from the Schematic Editor by choosing the Tools » Annotation » Number Schematic Sheets command from the main menus.
After launching the command, the Sheet Numbering for Project dialog will open. Use the controls available in the dialog to define sheet and document numbering as required. If your organization has a specific number or naming system that cannot be automated through either the Auto Sheet Number or Auto Document Number controls, custom sheet names and numbers can be written directly into the SheetNumber or DocumentNumber fields.
- Sheet or Document Numbers cannot be configured for Device Sheets when they are read-only (default state) and will be cross hatched in the Sheet Numbering for Project dialog to indicate they cannot be updated. When Device Sheets are set as editable, the cross hatching is removed and Sheet and Document Numbering can be configured as normal.
