I am trying to set several hundred points along polyline verticies with the point number starting at 5000. There are no other points in my drawing, yet everytime I start the process, it begins at 1. I have set 5000 at my Next Point Number under Point Identity in the Create Points toolbar. I have also verified that the 'Save Command Settings" is set to yes under the 'Commands-Create Points'. We cannot get this to behave as desired.
Can anyone tell me what I'm missing? This is a 2D polyline with no elevations.

Solved! by t2lv. See the answer in context.
Happy days! SP1 installed today seems to have fixed the problem. Starting point numbers are held and automatic placement will keep the numbering consistent. Thanks!
On the Settings tab, expand point, expand Commands, right click on CreatePoints, Edit Feature Settings...
My settings are identical except for the point number, but I cannot get the point numbering to change. I have no problem in 2012, but this is my first go around in 2013. My partner gets the same results on his updated workstation. I have attached a clipping.
In your create points toolbar, expand the chevron to the right and make sure that the point number states 5000.
None of the Point Creation commands, that I've tested, in 2013 honor the next point number property. Another bug discovered.
it works fine for me. You must make sure that the Next point number is set in the Feature Settings and in the Create Points toolbar. If it's not working, can you post the drawing so I can take a look at it?

just tried it with "manual point" and Civil3D 2013 German .... works for me (see video, maybe there are different workflows, command-calls, clicks, ... that makes the difference).

OK, Manual does work. The Automatic, On Line/Curve, and Polyline Vertices - Automatic definitely do not.
I can control the point numbering fine for a single manual point setting, but when I pick a polyline to set points automatically along the vertices, it returns back to ignoring my settings.
