Plot Date not showing / Gray in OIP?

Question

I have a plot date in my titleblock, lately it has not been showing up on sheets however, and the Refresh Plot Date button is gray in OIP. Has this broken with a recent SP?

Hello @techdef,

 

Is your Plot Date Format set to any of the Auto options? If so, could you send me a sample test file showing the issue?

Thanks for the file @techdef.

 

The problem is that you have your Title Block using a style, but the Sheet Data is set to By Instance (which is the default option). When you edit the style, you see the style's sheet data, which has Auto plot date. However, if you edit the Title Block itself, using the Title Block Border Settings button in the OIP, you will see that the plot date of your title block is Manual.

 

You can either adjust your title block (instance) data using the Title Block Border Settings dialog or the Title Block Manager for editing of multiple title blocks at once, or you can edit your style and set your sheet data to be by style by clicking the buttons left of each field. If you make your sheet data to be by style keep in mind that every title block in your file using that style will have the same value for the fields that are set to be by style.

 

Let me know if you need any further information.

 

Best Regards,

How odd, but thank you.

FYI, I havent changed anything on this since 2020-2021 update so I'm not sure what happened.

Also very curious that only the Plot Date failed with this.
