The name of the drawings/image is often something that is discussed in out office. And how this is then automatically placed in the title.

Although i do not agree to make it available to change the name of the view (in plotmaker) for the reason that it should be consistent with the name set in the pln. I do agree that the name of imported images should be changeable, they are often not called the same as what you would like them to be called in Plotmaker. We currently manually write the names below images and would be benefical not to have to do this.

You should name the view as you want it to be named in PlotMaker.

I wish there was a switch that separated the name that PM reads and a description for our own reference. Something like:

ELEVATIONS / South & North

or

ROOF FRAMING PLAN / With 1st flr ghost

or

ROOF FRAMING PLAN / With 2nd flr ghost

where the / separates the name and the description.

Any improvement aong these lines would be good. Got my vote!

Cheers,
Link.
