Feature request: sheet change buttons + indicator

joshua_samsjoshua_sams Member Posts: 21 PRO

so firstly. on my setup changing between sheets is really slow. I do not know if that’s just mine or if not, something that can be improved.


It would be nice if we could have some "Next sheet" and "Previous sheet" buttons on the page somewhere to make changing between sheets more fluid and also to help highlight that there is more than 1 sheet available. Perhaps with a Number between the buttons showing what sheet you are on.

someone else reviewing the workspace or someone coming back to a previous job can easily miss that these additional sheets exist.

in addition to this it may be beneficial to have a small Number on the tab indicating the number of sheets


opinions from other on shapers welcome

    I agree with this - I often have the drawing outline panel hidden so that I have more room for working on the drawing. But, when reviewing something from someone else (or just something I haven't looked at in a while) I sometimes forget to open the outline panel and miss the extra sheets. 

    I'm not sure of the best way to implement this, but I wonder if the icon on the left could be expanded to either show "hint" that there's more than one page, or include "<" and ">" buttons to scroll through the pages?

    It's not a visually available button, but as long as you're using the title block, the drawing itself has "sheet x of y" visible, and then the pg up/pg down/home/end keys can be used for navigation (Hit Shift-? to bring up the keyboard shortcut menu).

    Thanks for the keyboard shortcut tip!

    I use several shortcuts regularly, but would have never thought to look for that one.

    Bump. - is there any way we could get some improvements added on this?

    my reviewers keep complaining things are missing when there just on another sheet!
