Hello!

I want to create a text file from a dsn files that lists all parts, the schematic page where the part can be found, and the position of the part on the page.

So far I have explored that using the Bill of Materials menu I can add {Location X-Coordinate} and {Location Y-Coordinate} properties to the property string, so I can get the XY coordinates of every part in a design.

My problem is that a part does not have a property called 'schematic page' or 'page', so with this method I can't retrieve the exact schematic page where the component is placed.

My other problem is that it would be more practical to display the xy location with the region descriptor that can be found on the left and upper edges of a schematic page (for example A3).

Can anyone help me with this problem?

Thanks in advance,
recortebordes
