There is currently no way to get PlotMaker to build a sheet index automatically.

I would like to see each layout and/or subfolder have an option like "Include In Index", that way layouts or subfolders that aren't used (like presentation materials) could be excluded from the list. It should alway default to the "included" state when a new layout or folder is created.

The graphical index should be customizable to some extent to allow for similar sheet grouping or other alternate ways of displaying the data.

We use a simple sheet index similar to the one I faked in the graphic below. It might be useful to be able to separate the sheets into categories defined by the layout book, such as GENERAL, CIVIL, PLANS, ELEVATIONS, etc..
