I am using OpenRoads Designer Connect edition and am attempting to create some plan-profile sheets. I used the named boundary tool to create plan and profile drawing models and then utilized "model annotation" to annotate the alignment and profile, however I then need to drag some labels around to remove conflict as well as edit some of the labels to remove part of the label that the client does not want on the sheets. It seems pretty random but the annotations will reset to the original position and contain all of the original information (undo my deletions). How can I stop this from happening?
I have tried setting the update fields automatically to false, however this caused my stationing on the alignment to start at 0+00, instead of the 50+00 that it is set to, and did not always keep it from happening.
I also tried dropping the cells several times so as to loose the smart features they contain, however several of the multi line annotations break down into unusable pieces.
Please help as this is incredibly frustrating.
Maybe try adding MS_AUTO_UPDATE_FIELDS = FOLLOWMODELFLAG to your workspace configuration and theoretically you can control this by changing the "Update Fields Automatically" property in your model to avoid it automatically updating?
As long as you have this set to "True" in your seed file, it will otherwise work as normal unless you change it when you need to.

On testing, the annotation (alignment in this case) still updates - i'd say this is a defect personally...
