File Name and Layer Number plug-in suggestion


Recommended Posts

Posted · File Name and Layer Number plug-in suggestion

I love the File Name and Layer Number Post-processing plug-in, but have a suggestion to make it even better. Currently the format is something like
      Layer {current layer} {file name} of {total layers}

It would be really handy if the format was change slightly to something like

      Layer {current layer} of {total layers} {file name}
      Layer {current layer}/{total layers} {file name}

That way you could see at a glance how many layers still had to print. "Layer" could also be abbreviated to "Lyr" to save space.

I currently get around this by previewing my file to see how many layers there are, and Editing the Object List Text, putting /nnn before the object name.
