Edit point descriptions for auto linework

Is there a way to edit the point descriptions in the drawing and update my auto linework to match it.  I can edit the point description fine, but my auto linework will not update??

 

Thanks

I find that this is easier to accomplish with the text file. And then re-import the the SDB, it also seem to give a little more flexible. But if you edit points descriptions u and also update the linework via the SDB.

Thats what I have been doing, changing the txt file and re-importing.  I tried changing descriptions in the drawing and updating everything in the Survey data base, but nothing changes

Once you've updated the point(s), within the SDB, you can then click the "process linework" which will update your figures.  But make sure when editing a point you are doing so within the SDB, not just the drawing, and saving it.  

 

Also, if you right click on "Figures" within the SDB you have options to "update figures" and "automatic update".
