XS_​DRAWING_​PLOT_​FILE_​NAME

XS_​DRAWING_​PLOT_​FILE_​NAME

This advanced option must be set in an initialization (.ini) file.

Use this advanced option to define print filenames for drawings, if the filename is missing from the Print Drawings dialog box. This advanced option is used if you have not entered a value for some of the following advanced optionssettings used to customize Tekla Structures for specific companies, standards, users, or user groups

In Tekla Structures, advanced options are settings that are used, for example, in a specific project or geographical area, or by a specific company.

In Tekla Structures, advanced options usually begin with the initials XS and are followed by the name of the function, for example XS_BACKGROUND_COLOR.

: XS_DRAWING_PLOT_FILE_NAME_A , XS_DRAWING_PLOT_FILE_NAME_C , XS_DRAWING_PLOT_FILE_NAME_G , XS_DRAWING_PLOT_FILE_NAME_W , or XS_DRAWING_PLOT_FILE_NAME_M.

Enter any combination of text and options:

NAME

NAME.-

NAME.

DRAWING_NAME

DRAWING_NAME.

DRAWING_NAME.-

REVISION

DRAWING_REVISION

REV_MARK

REVISION_MARK

DRAWING_REVISION_MARK

REV

TITLE

DRAWING_TITLE

UDA:<drawing user-defined attribute>

TPL:<template attribute>

<variable>?- <text>

The question mark (?) can be used for querying if a <variable> is set, and if it does, the <text> after the question mark will be printed. See the second example below.

This advanced option is model specific and the setting is saved in the options databasedatabase file that contains the settings of model-specific general settings and advanced options

There are two options databases, the model options database (options_model.db) and the drawing options database (options_drawings.db).

.

Example

%DRAWING_NAME.% - %DRAWING_TITLE%%DRAWING_REVISION? - Rev %%REVISION_MARK%

%NAME% - %TITLE%%UDA:DRAWING_USERFIELD_1? - %%UDA:DRAWING_USERFIELD_1%%DRAWING_REVISION? - Rev%%DRAWING_REVISION%

It's not crystal clear what the ? (questionmark) results in.
In the Example-settings above, it would be nice if you could supply with the actual output in runtime or at least more in detail explain what you mean with "<text>".
I would have explained it like this for instance:
%<variable>?<text>%
results in output <text> if <variable> is not empty. Please note that the expression starts and ends with a %
