2018 Title Block - Data Field Dragging/Reordering

Question

Can we please get the ability to drag and reorder these data fields on the project data and sheet data fields without deleting and recreating.

Yes, please. I'm curious what defines this order to begin with, especially in title blocks converted from earlier versions. When you create a record format you have the ability to drag the fields into your preferred order, so my original title block fields were appropriately ordered. That order seems to be lost in conversion. @JimWis this supposed to happen? Shouldn't the fields retain their order in conversion?

No. Yes.

This topic and others related to the new Title Block Border is under heavy review and will very likely be redesigned. Unfortunately I can't give any further details yet but the instant I can, I will.

This is both good news and immensely terrifying for obvious reasons. I'm sad that so many resources may go into redoing something that was just done when there are so many other things are still on the bigger list.

 

Thanks for your candour.

I think folks are going to be very pleased by how things are handled for the next version. Keep an eye out.

Are you saying we have to wait until VW2019 to see these improvement/changes; or can we hopefully expect them in a future 2018 SP?
