Sheet number property text problem

Phenom
Phenom

We don't normally create multi-sheet drawings but this morning I have and I see a problem with the sheet numbers when printed.

Both sheets show correctly on screen - Sheet 1 of 2, Sheet 2 of 2 in the title block (property text is on the background sheet)

However, when printed, I get both showing Sheet 1 of 2.

 

This happens on 2 different printers.

The Solid Edge print preview is correct.

 

Has anyone else seen this problem ?

OK, so I found the solution to this problem.

The property text for Sheet Number and Number of sheets was contained in a multi-line callout along with the Title property text.

If I remove it from there and add it as its own callout the problem goes away.

 

Weird.

Hi @beachcomber

 

 

 

great to hear how You have solved Your issue although I cannot understand why this has such an influence.

The callout should be the callout and always should show the same numbers

That's what I thought.

 

The existing property text is

%{DRAWING TITLE 1/CP}
%{DRAWING TITLE 2/CP}
%{DRAWING TITLE 3/CP}

 

then I added

SHEET %{Sheet number} OF %{Number of Sheets}

 

I used cut/paste to remove the sheet/sheets and put it in its own property text, so I can't see that there can be error anywhere in its definition.

This is getting more strange by the minute -

I just put the sheet/sheets property text back with the titles -

if I print sheet 2 on its own, the information shown is correct (Sheet 2 of 2)

if I print both sheets it shows sheet 1 of 2 on both sheets.
