In my limited experience, the Automatic wire numbering places all of the wire numbers in model space. Is this correct by default, and is there a way to switch it to paper space? Or do you all do ladder and wiring diagrams in model space?
Solved! Go to Solution.
To the best of my knowledge, there are unresolved coding clashes which mean that when working in Paper Space, a number of drawing automation tasks cease to work correctly. The affected functions I've either heard about or come across myself include :
Positional cross-referencing between parent / child symbols, Intelligent inter-sheet notation, and Title Block Update (won’t work consistently - or at all). Also, sheet numbers can get evicted from drawing properties, which means that source / destination arrows may lose their way. Export / Update (to / from spreadsheet) is robbed of some functionality, and additionally - of particular interest to yourself - wire numbering becomes a bit of a lottery.
Doubtless others will have more fulsome explanations, but the answer seems to be to only ever use AE in Model Space.
Hope this helps
