Plant Style Name

Recommended Posts

I am finding that when I edit a plant style (say to change the default spacing) that the name doubles up.  For instance if I have a style HelHyb when I go in to edit it the plant/tag ID is automatically duplicated into the name and becomes HelHyb HelHyb.  I can manually remove it but it's very annoying.


Anyone know why and how to fix it?

Are you writing the data back to catalogs or the database?

Hi bgoff


That is a good tip, the posting back to the database is a bit of a pain, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to stop the name duplication when I edit a plant style
