EDIT CLASS ATTRIBUTES DO NOT STICK

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have a puzzle that is driving me MAD. I have a class that is being used to indicate hatch patterns for (drafted) walls on my floor plans. I have a 2nd file referenced into this file which also contains the same class, with the same attributes. When I attempt to edit the hatch - to change it from one hatch pattern to another - the edit does not stay as I edit it. When I save, close, and then re-open the file, the hatch pattern used for the class has reverted back to the original hatch pattern.

I have even created a new class with the hatch pattern I want, and then deleted the first class (moving the objects on to the new class) and when I close and reopen, the new class is now using the previous hatch setting. What is going on?!?

Check also your wall style and make sure they aren't references, because if they do, and you have set the option to edit the class attributes by the reference, this can happen.

Turns out there was a 3rd reference file attached to the drawing file. That file also contained the class and attributes I was trying to change. In fact, I believe the classes in question originated from this reference. Once I changed it there, the other files behaved as desired.
