pdf export (archive file)

pdf export (archive file)

pdf export (archive file)

I'm using legendary :) Cowski journal (attached). Excelent job btw.
I have question how to add solution which i find useful:
when I export pdf file, but pdf file with that name exist, it should change file name to pdf_file_name(today_date).pdf, and then write pdf_file_name.pdf .
Any ideas ?

RE: pdf export (archive file)

If you run the journal multiple times on the same day what happens? Do we archive the archive files?

RE: pdf export (archive file)

Also, are you sure you want to tack on today's date to the previous file, perhaps it would be better to tack on the creation date of the given file?

RE: pdf export (archive file)

That was fun. I've made this. It copy the previous version of pdf file to C:\ARCH\

Do we archive the archive files? If change was made today, script delete's the previous archive file. (line 48)

are you sure you want to tack on today's date to the previous file? yes

RE: pdf export (archive file)

Now I'm trying to export (in one move) all drawings to pdfs from assembly.

Simplyfied assembly structure:


And I want to get pdf with the same structure:


It is possible?

RE: pdf export (archive file)

Did you find a solution to your problem?
I'm not sure what you mean by a "pdf with the same structure".
