We have migrated over to PDM Standard 2018 from Workgroup PDM, and I am trying to get automatic creation of PDF copies of drawings to work correctly.
I have the task enabled in the workflow, and, sure enough, a PDF is created each time a drawing undergoes the transition from Under Check to Released.
My problem is as follows:
My drawing title block includes the Revision. When the drawing goes through the Release Transition into the Released State, the Alphabetic Revision is incremented and the Numeric Revision is reset to -00. However, the task to create a PDF is executed in the Transition, but the Revision is changed in the State:
The result is that the drawing file in the vault has the Revision A-00 shown in the title block, but the PDF copy of the same drawing has whatever the Revision was before Release, e.g. DEV-07, shown in the title block.
How can I get the PDF task to operate on the drawing after the Revision has been changed?
