Importing existing files from pre-2019 seems to make the title block manager system even more unstable than with a new sheet. I have had to re-input every drawing number over a dozen times as they all revert back to previous numbers when opening an individual title block. Best wait for a patch for this disastrous feature before using it. I cannot trust the title block manager system from 2019 to retain any information correctly and would recommend keeping well clear of it. The title blocks can however be ungrouped once initially set for a project and this will give the ability to change the individual sheet information easily (as normal text boxes) and so be reasonably sure it will not change back at random...it is also far quicker than using the Manager system feature. I can only assume that whoever invented the latest tilteblock feature had no idea about the commercial reality of getting drawings done quickly and accurately but was wrapped up in providing a new 'functionality' gimmick...which would be forgivable perhaps if it worked!
Does anyone have an opinion on which titleblock tool is better? I've only ever used the VAA titleblock tool up till now. I've heard mixed comment about the updated 2018 titleblock tool. Is it worthwhile for our office to make the change? i have just designed a new VAA titleblock and had problems with it not snapping to the correct location on the sheet. Had to re edit an old titleblock to the new design to get it to work. It seems also the VAA titleblock doesn't like too many groups within the titleblock symbol. These problems have left me considering changing to the 2018 titleblock tool. Id appreciate any advice. thanks
