I’m using Sketchup Pro, 2018, fully current.
I would like to find a feature to update the Auto-Text entries from a local table in Layout.
I have a template which requires text data that gets populated across multiple pages in a document (client name, door style, interior materials, exterior materials, hinge style, drawer track style, etc.) I’ve created auto-text tags and update each tag using Layout’s Document Setup Auto-Text function as required for my Layout document.
aClient = Smith
aDoor = Shaker
It’s very clunky and an awkward experience that I’m looking to simplify. I’m exploring the Tools/Table tool and was wondering if there is a way to reference a table I’ve created in Layout, perhaps similar to Excel’s referencing scheme - =MyTable(“B1”) or using Layout’s scheme <MyTable(“B1”)>
I’ve had no success figuring out how to name the table, let alone reference it, so I’m sending it through the community forum to see if anyone else has had success or found a more functional workaround than Layout’s auto-text option?
