Solid Edge App: Sheet Navigator

This app allows you to navigate through all open 'working' sheets in Solid Edge Draft.


Usage:


1. Extract the Zp file to a folder and note that there are two executables


2. Assign those macros to two button on the QAT or the Radial menu and also add keyboard accelerators like 
 
Ctrl+PageUp and Ctrl+Pagedown 
 
or 
 
Shift+F11 and Shift+F12.


 
3. Now when you press the keys, the app will navigate through all open 'working' sheets.
 
Notes:
 
1. When you are on the last sheet the next sheet activated will be the first sheet in the drawing.
2. When you are on the first sheet the previous sheet activated will be the last sheet in the drawing.
3. This is unlike in MS Excel where it is not possible to navigate to the last first sheet directly from the first sheet and vice-versa.
