This should get you started. You can create drawing list, view lists, change lists, layout lists, issue contents.

yes i just looked for it and tweaked parameters,

but i have to create tens of lists, each list for specified drawing placed on specified layout

it cannot be placed on master layout so it updates automatically

It is possible to list all drawings placed on a layout by using Auto Text, but the text is returned as a series of comma-separated values
eg. If I draw a text box on a layout (or master layout) and insert Auto Text from the 'Drawing' sub-menu (see screen shot)

To achieve anything better than this (like a table) would involve a GDL scripted object.

What is the purpose of such a list, if all the drawings are placed on the layout anyway?
