Profile data shortcuts not organizing properly

I am using Civil 3D 2011


When creating profile data shortcuts, the tree view in tool space incorrectly associates the profiles with several alignments.  This appears to be due to multiple alignments having the same object ID.  This happens when importing alignments from LandXML (a procedure we use to move alignments from one project to another) into a template after inserting exactly the same xrefs into each new alignment drawing.


The workaround appears to be copying the alignment into a different site, deleting the original alignment, then moving the new alignment back to the original site.  Obviously, this changes the object ID so it is more likely to be unique.


Not sure if this bug has been reported, or where to report it.

Hi John,


Do those alignments with the same ID have also the same name? I know that in Data Shortcut editor there is a settings that may set handle to be by "handle or name", "handle only" and "name only". What settings do you have and do you see any difference if you change it and save it?
