So this issue has been going on for a few versions now at the very least...probably has been an issue from the beginning, but not eager to install every previous version to see if it actually worked at all.
Basically the problem is that the settings: Automatic Naming of Sheets, Inherit Naming Rule From Parent, and Start Number are not working as expected.
Our projects normally consist of three different plan sets:
We have setup a template DGNWS with the structure of the sheets contained within to help aid the user with managing their sheets. So as an example, Project Number for the Workset and then primary folders for each plan set type:
Once you enter a plan set, the structure shows each sheet type:
The initial problem is that if the plan set folder is set to FALSE for Inherit Naming Rule From Parent, then the sheet numbers do not increment up like they should. This is even if all of the sheet type folders have the Inherit Naming Rule From Parent set to TRUE.
Setting the plan set to TRUE fixes this issue, but makes absolutely no sense.
The problem with trying this as a workaround is that it breaks the numbering for the other two plan sets. Setting the other plan set to TRUE or FALSE doesn't get the desired results:
The first sheet should be numbered "1" and the second as "2"...definitely doesn't work as I would expect.
Some of the changes I would like to see:
At the Workset level (top level):
For any folder or sub-folder:
