page number and page total attribute annotation

Hi,

 

Because I prefer the hierarchical design drawing method for designs containing multiple sheets the standard attributes @SHEET and @SHEETTOTAL don't work for me (we use PADS 9.0.2).

Therefore I try to define a standard scout.ini file to perform an automatic sheetnumbering of the hierarchical design.

For me this works fine but I would like to have the page number and page total separated in my border (in our company border we have 2 separate fields for page number and page total).

Therefore I defined the following settings in my scout.ini file:

 

| tag border component with sheet location info. within block
direct_reference
    attr any a1sheet_mycompany.1 comp_attr any 20.60,2.50 lower_left
    format_entry "$page_num"
    format_attr_vis value_visible
    format_attr_size 0.12
end

direct_reference
    attr any a1sheet_mycompany.1 comp_attr any 20.60,2.18 lower_left
    format_entry "$page_total"
    format_attr_vis value_visible
    format_attr_size 0.12
end

 

However when I scout my design only the total page value is visible in my border and the page number seems to be disappeared or overwritten. When I remove the second part (for page total) then the page number value is visible. I can combine the attributes in one line like SHEET $page_num of $page_total (this works fine) but in fact this is not want I want.

Is there a possibility to have the page number and page total values separated in the border?
