Sheet Title updating per character entry

Recommended Posts

When updating the value of the 'Sheet Title' on my Title Block Border, via the Title Block Border Settings I am experiencing a continuous live refresh of the title block with each character entered. This prompts me to enter my title slower to ensure I'm typing the correct description.


If I modify the sheet title via the Sheet Layers tab in the Organization window this of course is a non issue.


Has anyone else experienced this problem?

I have just tested this again in VW2018 on SP2 and the value is not getting updated on each character entered. Could you make a movie showing the issue and how to reproduce it?

@Nikolay ZhelyazkovI've attached (2) videos as an example.


The first, is a fresh file, with a default 'unstyled' 2018 title block. The video shows me editing the sheet title with no delay. [Original 2018 Title Block.mov]


The second video shows me editing the sheet title of my converted 2018 title block in an average sized lighting plot file we draft. [Slow Title Block.mov]


Its my opinion that the refresh is tied to the geometry contained in the viewports. Thoughts?

Thanks for the screen recordings! I have noticed the issue and was able to reproduce it. I will investigate this further more and write here, when there is progress.


Best Regards,
