Names and values of parts dissapair when moving them between sheets

When I move parts from one sheet to another all the values and names of the parts disappear. Do someone have a solution or explanation to this problem?

I also have this issue. Does anyone have a solution?

Seems like it possible to get them back by right clicking the component and selecting "restore position". However it seems like a bug that the workaround is necessary.

I just tried this, and had no problem.
Can you share a screencast or explain your steps to recreate it?

I tried to recreate it. It seems that if I move single component between sheets it does not happen. The problem only occur when I try to move groups between sheets.

 

Under is a image of the group when it is not moved. Then I used the move command to move it to another sheet within the schematic file. And the designators and the values are gone. Shown in the last image.

Just tried this, and everything works fine, names and values moves with it.

You might need to report this to support to get it figured out.

Hi @christian.wilhelmsen2012 ,

 

Thanks for bringing this up. I tried it a few times and all you have to do to get the text back is use the restore position command. Apply it to the group and you'll be set.

Now getting on to the end of 2023 ..... This problem is still apparent when moving groups between sheets.
Is this ever going to be addressed ???

Hi @steve_brettVVMUU,

 

I've bumped this thread. Now just to confirm, the Restore position command still solves it right? I understand you shouldn't have to do that but if you do it do the attributes come back?

 

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

Thankyou Jorge
Yes the same Restore Position fix works but I couldn't make it work on the whole group ... had to do every component individually.
Didn't do much to fix the near heart attack that came when the entire weeks worth of work seemed to disintegrate before me !!   Lucky I found this thread eventually which gave a work-around.

For me designs tend to expand rapidly during the early phases of a project as new ideas and possibilities become apparent. Repagination is important  and should be easier.
There are some issues with grouping as well but thats another conversation.
