I was wondering if there is a way you can have source arrows update the sheet number and the reference number automatically. If not is there a way you can do it by using something else. Just looking to display the sheet number and reference number from a different drawing to show where the wire goes to a different drawing.
Yes it can be automatic. But it needs to be set up. It not hards but tricky. To me it was as I had no support.
I assume that you are creating a project (<file> name.wdp file) Border with each sheet has a sheet number.
I ensure that location 0,0 is set on the drawing
drawing properties cross reference tab use %s-%n
Drawing format, setup is set.
go to www.ecadconsultant.com/tips.html has some good oil.
This has a good tutortial and infi. No this is not my company or do I get a commission.

Another Question I got it setup by creating a column of numbers on the left side of the drawing to line reference numbers but now if I update some of the reference numbers by right clicking on the source arrow or the destination arrow and click retag it doesn't put the right reference number in there it puts in a six and its not suppose to be a six. This only happens on a couple of them and when the reference is on a different sheet.
