How to create text counting up

Post by Andreas_FI » Thu May 03, 2018 11:10 am

Hi,

What would be the easiest way to create a list of text, names or labels that is counting up including a prefix or suffix?

This is a workflow I use quite often in my work when creating e.g. inputs labels from 1-32 (see example drawing attached).

Currently copy the text (in my example 32 times using move/copy command) and then change the text or number manually.
Is there a more elegant or effective way to do this?

Could I create a block with text and a field where a number or block count is automatically increasing when adding to a drawing or copying?

Thanks for your advice.

Have a look at Misc > Draw > Counter which is somewhat unpolished (hence in Misc) but might cover your use case.

Thanks Andrew. That would do the trick. At leasts it is more efficient than my current workflow. Thanks!
