Small sweet wish:
I wish to have an Autotext showing the print size of the Master Layout its placed on.

When there are 3 Master Layout its not a big deal to write the paper size by hand, but when it comes to 25 different paper sizes it becomes an issue.

Its propably very simple to code.

You only have to do it once in your template.

I would find it handy in Publisher PDF file names when sorting for hardcopy to ensure I don't send mis-named A1 prints to the A2 printer.

It’s a very good wish. Mostly (at least in Germany) the paper size has to be shown in drawing head for accounting copy costs, scaling, etc.
So an AutoText would be the best way to avoid change-mistakes by using a client predefined template. Mostly clients send only one paper size. The others will be made similar by engineering office. One template, one AutoText – job done.
