Problems with Space Tool - Multiple Space tags showing & problems with Space Styles


I have been using multiple space tags in my 2018 file. All space tags and their tag symbols where in different classes and visibilities were controlled in viewports.

I just converted my file to 2019 and it shows all space tags even the class is turned off.

This is how it should look like:


This is how it looks in 2019 with 2nd tags showing (though the class is off):



I know that the space tag tool is remade, but this bug doesn't help in smooth conversion of existing files. I would like to keep some of old system in place till we have time to update drawings with ID Tags. 

Plus other things:

- Using Space Styles crash the file.

- Applying Space Style to an existing space it change all space info (Space ID, Occupancy etc) to default Space Style info, though the parameters in those fields are set By Instance. Besides it changes Space class to 2D Boundary Class not to Space Object Class which is set in Space Style. 

- Space tags Data Tag doesn't allow to change space name with a drop down list offering just Custom or Edit List

- Space name or other dropdown lists of Occupancy info in Schedules doesn't work either.

This is a documented bug. 




Jim says it should be fixed in SP3 which has not been released.  I am hoping that it gets released soon because we have several projects in our office that absolutely require the space tool to function correctly.
