Folders Printing

Is there any way to print folders at once for documentation purposes?

    I don't think there's a way to export folders to text. A screenshot (or multiple screenshots) would probably be a workaround. In our documentation I normally just add a link to the specific version (plus whatever drawings/exports) necessary as well.

    If you don't mind having to automate it, you can do it with the API.

    If you put this URL into your browser (while you have Onshape open), you should see a list of items in your Onshape:
    https://cad.onshape.com/api/globaltreenodes/magic/1?getPathToRoot=true&limit=50&sortColumn=modifiedAt&sortOrder=desc

    You would have to go through the list of items and find the ones that are only of type "folder", and then find the information that you want (which I assume would be the "name" property.

    One thing to note is that the URL only gives you the first 50 items. To get the next 50, you need to follow the URL in the property "next", which has set the "offset" property for you.
