Title Block and record format

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


Just learning how to use record format by playing around with title blocks.

I'm using one of the standard title block that comes with VW.

For some reason, the sheet number is not updating as i duplicate my sheet layers. Though the "sheet number" changes under the navigation palette. The sheet number in my actual page (linked to the record format) does not change. (see attached)


I was wondering if there was a workaround to this problem.

My first guess is that the text object within the title block symbol might not be properly linked to the corresponding Record Field. Or perhaps the Record Field was renamed?


Take a look at the following page which might help as you explore title blocks: https://www.andybroomell.com/vectorworks-title-block-tutorial - step 3 is what I'm referring to above. Try re-linking the sheet number text to the appropriate Record Field (which should end in _SN).


If that doesn't work, feel free to attach the file so we can help you troubleshoot.
