I've a couple macro's for this. One saves a tiff of the active drawing to
the same folder. A second asks for a source and destination folder, then
TIFFs all drawings in that folder. Both truncate the original filename to
20 characters (our MRP requirement) and add a " -s*" at the end of all TIFF
files for sheet number. A third is the same as the second but adds a
revision at the end of the filename pulled from a drawing note. They also
set TIFF ouput options to what we designated as our standard. They're all
fairly simple and easy to modify.
If you'd like any, let me know and I'll e-mail them to you.
P.S. I was really hoping SW would add multi-sheet TIFF capability in SW2004,
but it doesn't look like it.
Yu may want to look at my batch print and batch convert tool
PAC4SWX, which can handle multisheet drawings and will take
care of the different sheet sizes when exporting to TIFF.
