    Room numbers resetting / renumbering by themselves

    Hi All,

    We've got an apartment block with stacking layouts. The rooms for these apartments have been grouped and copied to each level.

    In 99% of cases this has worked fine (although I'm not convinced on the overuse of groups), but we have now run into a strange issue where, even minutes after correctly numbering the rooms in an apartment, the numbers are reverting or changing on their own.


    Is this some kind of glitch anyone else has run into, or are we missing something?

    Any input would be greatly appreciated,
    Thanks

    Is someone trying to reload a group by reimporting it from a saved our RVT? If so, yes, it renumbered the mark values, which can get ugly really fast.

    Hi,

    Nothing being re-imported, literally just room numbers being edited, going onto another level, editing those room numbers, then going back to the previous level and the room numbers are jacked up again (simplified).

    I also noticed that schedule column widths (dragged wider on sheets) were reverting back multiple times...

    Hmmm. Are they in Edit Group mode, while editing the Mark (Room Number) of the units? Because Mark and Comments, you dont have to be in EGM for.

    No, just tabbing into the room element or changing info in the tag.

    The issue with the schedule columns has made me very suspicious of some kind of bug, as this was happening to multiple people trying to fix the same issue - it just kept 'forgetting' the change.
