Find survey database

Is there a way to find out what survey database a point belongs to??


If I open an existing drawings with survey points in it, I can't find a way to determine what survey database those points reside in, without remembering which one it is.


Unless I am missing something??

You've got it!


And before I get derailied into my five-year-long "Project Rant", I think I'll sign off...


(Autodesk, PLEASE give us Project functionaity back!  This is the only real thing we lost after leaving LDD.)

I'm with Sinc on this issue. Try this, it may get you close. In windows explorer find out the "date created" of your drawing with points in it. Then search for a survey.sdbx file with the same time stamp.

PROJECTS ARE IMPORTANT!!!!!  That's how we start things in this industry.  It's insane that our software doesn't recognize such a basic concept.
