Prg to export cgm files from multiple sheets in I-deas Drafting

I would like to create I-deas program for exporting cgm files from multiple sheets in Ideas drawing.Can anyone help me on this. I tried but i can able to export for a single sheet only

RE: Prg to export cgm files from multiple sheets in I-deas Drafting

If you have not found a solution already, I wrote something like this for a customer on UNIX in the late 90's so it's definitely possible.

IIRC, I based it on the Multi-Plot macro that was available under the User Library.

ULIB is an optional install, so you might need to add it, but you'll find it then under ...\ulib\gdr\...

try "plot_multi.prg" first. It looks like the one I recall. You'll need to change the command from doing "Plot" to "Export" for CGM.

I'm not an expert on Drafting macros, yet was able to do it fairly simply, IIRC.
