We have several drawings with Line reference numbers. They are in the Formate of %S-%N On a few AutoCAD 2008 Electrical Workstations when we go to edit the Line Reference numbers, the 7 in the Reference Set field seems to be interperated as a Minus.
The way I want the lines to look:
the way they actuall show up
Initally in the Edit Component I see the Reference start to be 7-100 and the End to be 7-199 Index 10 and Format %S-%N
All is good. I change the Rung Count from 10 to 20 and now the end looks like 7099.
If I make the start ref number to be "7- 100" (No Quotes, but havinfg the Space after the dash) then the end ref number look slike "7- 299"
If I replace the dash with any other character it works fine.
I Can open the document on another ACAD 2008 or 2010 system and all works. But I have three 2008 systems that are messed up.
Found a Hotfix for the specific Issue!
