Data Tags Disassociate


Recommended Posts

What causes data tags to disassociate from  the objects that they are connected to.  


I've been experiencing persistent random dissassociation of space tags and wall tags in my file.  I am using project sharing for this file.  Working in VW2019 sp2?

Any ideas as to what is causing it?  Is there a way beyond placing a new tag to reattach?

Hello cberg,


This is knowing issue and we are working on it. The problem is that tagged object( wall, space... ) is not checked out when the data tag is edited.


If you want to reattach data tags, you can use control points. If the data tag does not have  leader, you have to turned on it (the leader) first and then to reattach the data tag.

We're trying to use project sharing in 3 person office.  We thought we'd use the new data tags and tag all the objects in the sheet layers.  It has been an unmitigated disaster.  Now, you can't even update a viewport (elevation or section) without checking out tags on other sheets - it makes no sense.  The tags take ownership of everything so it is nearly impossible for two people to work on the project.  


Even with an entire elevation sheet layer checked out, if we try to generate the viewports it will ask us to check out tags on floor plan sheet layers.

We, even the engineers who fix the issues themselves, often do not know when the fix will be pushed out to the public. I'll keep an eye on this and post as soon as I hear anything.

Hi Tim,

We are having the same problem (Data Labels dissassociating from spaces) with spaces referenced in to a file using traditional referencing (no project sharing) is this the same issue?

I think that this is another issue. Could you send me a simple test file and steps how to test the problem?
