Printing SchDoc's in specific sequence
« on: March 06, 2018, 10:07:38 am »
Can anyone advise how to specify the sequence in which the multi-page SchDoc's of a project will print to a multi-page PDF (or printer for that matter)?

I'd like them to print in the sequence in which they appear in the project, but the page sequence is being scrambled in the print out.

If I remember correctly, Altium had a means to do this in the Outjob Config.

I pointed out to James that I would really like to see outjobs better supported in CS.

In the project dialog, try dragging and dropping the schematic files to change the order they are listed in, sometimes that can help.
Also, try deleting the .outjob file so its regenerated.

Oops. Ignore my previous post, that just seemed to re-order the bookmarks list in my PDF reader.

The answer is:
The order of schematic pages in the PDF depends on the "SheetNumber" property.
You can set the SheetNumber property manually (press 'o' > Document Options > Parameters) or automatically number all sheets (Tools > Number Sheets)

Note that the PDF bookmarks may not appear in the same order as the actual PDF pages. But that might just be my reader (SumatraPDF)

Right you are Volts, thanks.

I was thinking that parameter would only annotate the title block sheet number (sheet 5 of 6, etc).

It does indeed do what I want now.
