I am not seeing any problems in SW06 or SW08, maybe a regression?
On the RMB do you see a choice for "Continue Numbering"?
Or, can't you just go the end of the line/note 4 and hit the enter key?
One last item, even though we are in the digital age, Note Numbers, like Balloon Numbers are sometimes referenced in other documents, therefore the need to Never Delete!
Also, if you are under most Military and some Government contracts, the "Deleted" entry for BOMs & Notes is a requirement.
Yes, the functionality is there, auto-numbering does work. I just can't "skip" 4 (and thus keep Note 5 as Note 5). If I try and restart the numbering, and force it to start at 5 (my work-around), I can't. It always restarts at #1.
I'm also interested that the Gov't contracts require DELETED. On the F-18 project I worked on, the Boeing drawings were all done with drawing notes removed. Note #'s remained the same, but they did not leave place holders for deleted notes. I also have not seen that specified anywhere, but you know, there's a billion specs out there telling me what to do...
Josh, I'll take a look. Thanks.
Okay, I think I got it, in order to start remubering or continue numbering, you must select a line or group of lines prior to activating the RMB menu.
I tried this and it worked for me and on one occassion, I had to toggle from one to the other. Kind of like when a flag does not reset in the software.
EDIT: The other trick to clear the formatting is to set to "bullet", then back to numbering.
I always thought the DOD standard was to say REMOVED when something was changed. That way you can't get any numbers already used.
Still can't get it to work, even with both of your tricks, Eddie. Thanks for the input everyone.
