Topic: Previous and next folio

Instead of using the Folio Id I often use folio numbers with defined ranges.

eg.
001 - Title page
002...005 - Index pages
051...090 - Main Current
101...199 - Control current
301...399 - PLC
501...599 - Material lists
701...799 - Terminal lists
etc.
This leaves a lot of gaps between the page ranges. Afterwards it is more easy to put in some new parts.

The problem is, when printed out, it is hard to see if there misses any page. That is why I'd like to add in the title block a cell with "previous page" and "next page". Is there a possibility to do so, or will there be some option available in the future?

You could use the arrows found in
QET Collection
  Electric
    All-Pole
      Folio referencing

Close to the title block on all pages draw a short line and use the arrows, and link to adjacent pages.

I use a similar method but link to and from block schematic page(s), using home brew symbols instead of the arrows.

For the moment, I'm already developing a new feature that will take some time to be finish.
I put your request it in the todo-list

Re: Previous and next folio

Thank you for your reactions.

The option with the reference arrows is a nice temporary option, but I have one problem with it. I use references for a lot of connections with the following type (%F-%c), eg. 312-3. Since there are more references at one page the column number is needed.
For the Folio references though I would like to have only page numbers. I found a way to change them in the project settings, but then all the references change. Is there an option available to set the reference type to (%F) for these references only?

Re: Previous and next folio

To be really complete, the new variables previous-folio-num and next-folio-num should be extended with 4 new variables:
previous-folio-plant, next-folio-plant, previous-folio-loc and next-folio-loc

This way, we could also use this new variables in diagrams made according to IEC 81346.

Re: Previous and next folio

So how is the work going guys? Can't wait to see new features!

I wish I could help with the programming, but I don't know anything about it. But I always recommend your software to other engineers and I'm planning to make a video tutorial on YT for Polish users this spring. That's why I'm asking if the new version is coming soon, so I could make this tutorial with all the new features nomicons/wink

Re: Previous and next folio

Most of the work is done, a first release candidate version could arrive soon.

I'm planning to make a video tutorial on YT for Polish users this spring.

Great idea, thanks in advance for Polish QET users.
