I'm fairly new to autodesk, I have tried the drawing wide auto wire tag and it doesn't seem to be tagging all of the wires any suggestions from you guys why it might be doing this?


Any help appreciated

Be sure that the terminal block symbols on those un-numbered wires are of the type to force a wire number change. It appears that you prefer to assign a different wire number to field wires. You must force the wire number change by using a terminal or connector that changes the wire number as it passes through. Hint: This type of terminal or connector must also be used if your field wires are set for no wire numbering.

Also check that your wire layers are able to be numbered. Type AEWIRETYPE in ther command line and make sure that the wire numbering box for the wire layer that you are trying number has "YES" in it.
