VW2021 BUG - Cable Numbering not unique to entire project file

Recommended Posts

We just ran into a very bad bug that needs to be fixed ASAP!


@Conrad Preen


Right now if you number cables, it restarts numbering in every design layer instead of incrementing as per project file.


Yes we can work around but its burning dozens of hours, and I mean dozens.


Please see a screenshot of the issue as it exists you will see its in two different design layers but has the same restarted numbering.

Hi Kevin


Is it possible for you to send me the Vectorworks file, and also the file named Numbering.xml (in Plug-Ins/connectCAD_Data/ in the application path). I want to see how the numbering system you are using is defined.

I seem to be having the same issue. Numbering starts at 9001 on every layer. These are two different design layers in the same file.
