Find Replace Text issue with Callout Notes

Recommended Posts

Can someone advise if this is a bug or not.

Have numerous callout notes in a job.

Used the "find replace text" tool to alter a piece of text.

Get pop up that 5 instances have been found and changed.

Go to the notes and at a glimpse all appears well.

Only just found if I double click on these callout notes that the text reverts back to the original.

Pretty massive issue when documenting a build.

Where these notes linked to the database? If so, then perhaps that is where the issue if coming from.

 

I thought you could manually edit the text even when linked to the database and have it stay, but I have not tested thoroughly enough to say for sure.

Hi Pat, no I have them unlinked as was having so much trouble with the database/keynotes.

I can go and manually edit each bit of text and it stays, but the find a replace text tool for some reason switches back.

Very worried how many notes in the projects have been affected by this.

I just ran a pretty simple test here and I am not seeing this issue.

 

I places a few items with Call out in the text. I then did a Find/Replace to Callout.  It did report is was doing double or more the number of replacements as there were callout objects in the drawing, but they all changed and stayed changed when I opened the edit dialog box.

 

It worked the same both or callouts placed manually and using the database.

 

I don't know what is going on in your file.

Thanks Pat, yeah I don't know either what's going on.

Another task to do manually I suspect.
