Numbering direction - Which direction to use for numbering. Very similar to "Layout direction" in printer settings. There are two options:

  • "Direct sequence" (NM-1 -> NM-2 -> NM-3). When we are numbering all layers on the one page, then all on the second and so forth
  • "Drill sequence" (NM-1 -> NM-1 -> ... -> NM-1 -> NM-2 ...). When we are numbering all layers with name NM-1 on all pages, then numbering all NM-2 on oll pages and so forth
