I am trying to find a way of automating the renaming and publishing (PDF) 2 copies of same drawing with different names - 1 set that would go to a client that request a certain job no (which we have on the title block - as attribute=client_job_no) and the same set but titled with our own job number (also shown on title block as a attribute=our_job_no) for our own files I'm wondering where to start - we have a lisp routine that renames individual drawings tabs to one of the above attribute values but we have to run it on each drawing manually - then we publish those. and then do the same again with the other lisp on all the drawing individually and publish those. but would be looking to link something together that can automate more of the process - i suppose something along the lines run the Client_rename lisp on all open drawings - publish all to pdf in folder xzy:xzy/Client pdf and in same routine then run the OUR_rename lisp on all open drawings - publish all to pdf in folder xzy:xzy/our pdf. very rusty on lispsso any help /direction would be appreciated.
