How to change FEMAP new entity numbering method?

How do I force FEMAP to number newly created entities from the next highest available entity ID?

 

Currently it seems FEMAP tries to number newly created entities from the lowest available ID.

 

For example, I have curves numbered 1 thru 100, with a gap in the numbers.say (#25-30)

 

I create a surface and femap labels the curves of the surface with IDs (25, 26, etc) when I want femap to sart with curve ID 101.

 

Thanks,

You can go to Tools->Parameters and set the NextID to wherever you want to start for any of the entity types.

Just tried, but it still fills in the lowest available id's.

When I create a surface from mesh, the curves of those surfaces fill in IDs I would like to keep unassigned.

I see what you are saying with Surface->From Mesh... that is not correct behavior. We will investigate.
