Has anyone else had issues with plan sets automatically changing the drawing mode that appears on your plan set sheets? I've had this happen several times and don't always catch it before sending off a PDF.

I've had it happen mainly when I have had drawings going for several hours and am working on a "live" floor system or roof framing plan that I am using in the plan set structural sheets. I will often find it has changed the floor plan sheet to show the framing plan instead. Occasionally it will show two different modes at once in one drawing instance (a hybrid between the two modes).

I have had that lately using multi's....working in electrical mode and automatically switching to roof mode for instance.   Still waiting for that huge patch to come out to fix a bunch of 2016 issues

Yes.  There is a glitch that needs to be fixed soon.  What I have found that seems to work most of the time is when you change the drawing mode that you are using, instead of changing and hitting enter (which is what I used to do), you also have to go down and specifically hit the okay button.  This seems to save the settings and for the most part keeps the settings saved.

Here's what I got from tech today...

 

Development is looking further into the issue, but we suspect it may be related to having the Plan Set pages opened in a Child window. For now, do not open plan set pages in a Child windows, but open them in the main window only. We believe that this should stop the issue from occurring.

I always have my Plan sets open in a child window ... and haven't seen this, but I'll bear it in mind. Thanks Mark.
