moving a design-layer causes a sheet-title check out?!?!?

Question

I created a new design-layer and moved it in another position. Now VW asks me to check out Sheet Titles. Why??!?!?

Works as designed, of course, but, however doesn't make any sense to me...

Hello @matteoluigi,

 

If you have Title Block Borders in your file, they might be causing this checkout. The reason is that TBB objects have some automatic data such as Page Number, which is being updated when you change the position of the layers. This might be the reason why you get your layers checked out. If this is the case and you do not want it to work like that, you can make your TBB objects inactive, using the "Activate title block" option in the OIP. Then, turn off Auto Generate Page Number option from the TBB Settings dialog and then your TBB will not get their Page Number updated and should not get checked out.

 

If this is not the case, can you send me a test file and a screen recording showing the issue?

 

Thanks,

Nikolay Zhelyazkov
