I am working on a schematic design in Altium Designer 17.1 that makes use of the Repeat() command for a child sheet. I have a certain sheet repeated 8 times for 8 channels of the device.
However, when printed out, the schematic shows all 8 sheets with the slightly different designators for each component (this is as it should be), but the sheet number (a parameter defined in the Document Options dialog) is duplicated for all channels.
Document Options "Sheet Number" parameter:
Having 8 "Sheet 2"s in the schematic printout is obnoxious and terrible practice. Is there a way to modify the parameter so that it increments for each channel? For example, instead of having Sheet 0 (hierarchy overview), Sheet 1, and 8 Sheet 2s, I would like Sheet 0, Sheet 1, Sheet 2, Sheet 3... Sheet 8, and Sheet 9.
EDIT: I have found out how to display the individual duplicate sheet numbers as Sheet 2.1-2.8, but I would like it to display whole-number sheets instead of decimals. Additionally, when I use the 2.X option it changes the total sheet number to 10 for just the repeated sheets, and having 2.8 sheets of 10 is not what I'm looking for.
EDIT2: I solved part of the problem. There is a tool buried in Altium called "Annotate Compiled Sheets", found in Tools -> Annotation -> Annotate Compiled Sheets. In this dialog the user is allowed to manually enter Sheet Numbers for each of the sheets, including the repeated ones that do not show up in the "Projects" panel.
However, the Sheet Total still shows "10", even though I changed it to "9".
Also, when I run the OutJob the individual sheet numbers do not carry through to the final schematic. They show up correctly in Altium, but when printed it only shows "Sheet 2" every time.
