Issue#305049: Autodesk - Title Block Update Error Too Few Arguments - Solved

  • I have a project in ACAD Electrical 2016.  I have the Title Block Setup Done.  I can update all the Title Block Information if I do one drawing at a time.  I would like to resequence the sheet %S value.  When I press OK Project-wide, it throws up Error: Too Few Arguments.  I have successfullyupdated each drawing by using OK Active Drawing Only, so I know each of them has the title block and can be updated individually.  Obviously this is not acceptable.  


    While typing this, I decided to check the %S value tag in the Title Block Setup.  It was setup.  However, I decided to switch the Sheet and Of Sheet values. I did a save.  I then performed the OK Project-Wide, and it worked, with no error.  I changed it back to the original, saved, and it is working just fine.  This seems to do some sort of cleanup? on the title block.  Perhaps a reset, reinitialize?  Sorry for the confusion.  I would like to still post this as it does answer the issue, in case someone else runs into this.  


    This project was copied from another project, and I might not have Edited the Title Block since it was already setup correctly?  Maybe a change needs to be made and saved, then changed back to fix this?  Does anyone have any ideas why this happened?

  • Issue#200091: Autodesk - Title block won't update

    The title block in my drawnig won't update, nor allow me to change manually.   I replaced the refernce model from another drawing, but I have done this before without nay complications.   How can I force this to change?


    Just a little warning: after we upgraded our templates and few projects to Revit 2017 all our title block's text is not aligned any more - now instead of single line it goes to 2 lines, justification is missing etc...That is not what we were expecting from the new and " Improved" Revit (which also broke some of our door families but apparently according to the support agents it is our problem not theirs)So check your sheets before printing if you upgraded the templates and projects as we did.(I am opening a case with support to see what they will say but probably is our fault again so no high hopes there...)

  • Issue#835111: Autodesk - Questions about Lips's and building an auto update transmittal & title block

    Hi Guys,I'm a long time reader of the forums here, though new to posting....... Anyway I have recently heard about a transmittal system that automatically updates Itself with current revision to match the drawings as well as populates the address, job number, client etc etc all from the DWG and vice versa the title block can also be populated and drawings can be up rev'ed from the transmittal, all the transmittal's we're made in excel. I'm just wondering how feasible it would be to build a system like this for myself from scratch? how would I go about building it?

    Hi, I've tried to follow acad instructions on how to have a title block with fields that autoupdates across several layouts (info such as client, venue etc that wont change) but they aren't mac specific instructions so keep getting lost especially with the limitations of LT but know it is possible. I would want to update in one instance and the fields update across all.  Would really appreciate if someone could give me step by step method to build a title block that would update across several layouts.I am also interested in how to have the layout name auto update as the drawing name in the title block. Many thanks,

  • Issue#1089157: Autodesk - Update title block insertion point in border

    I have an existing border created in Inventor that we have been using for quite some time.  We are making a few adjustments to our drawing style and due to those changes the boundaries of the border have changed a little. Therefore I need the insertion of the title block to change slightly.  I have update the connection point, but I cannot get the title block to "move" to its new location.  I have removed both title block and border and re-inserted both, but the position of the title block does not update. Any suggestions? INV2011

  • Issue#15587: Autodesk - Problem With Title Block Attributes

    Hi all, this is my first post, have been trawling the forum for a while and can't see a solution to this issue I am running Autocad LT 2016 on a 27" iMac retina 5k machine, am very new to this CAD package so I'm afraid I may not be the most literate ! I am using a custom title block that I have assembled myself from bits and pieces from other drawings - it contains various attributes that when double clicking brings up an editable list and all has been working fine with it until now However, when I double click now I get a message as shown below - this remains on screen after clicking "OK" but dissapears upon the 36th click each time ! I can still edit the attributes via the Properties Inspector so they aren't "broken" as such If anyone can help I would be grateful Ian

  • Issue#18509: Autodesk - Wrong display of hatch patterns within blocks after block update

    My application creates blocks that contains sections from sets of 3DSOLIDs. These blocks also contain hatches.The app has a function that updates an existing block. It erases all enties within the block and re-creates them.After this update the hatch pattern visually changes to solid black when the visual style is changed from "2D wireframe" to anything else.The block looks good in the blockeditor. The display is fixed when the blockeditor is left with "save changes".   I have created a screencast to show what happens. An eTransmit Archive of the DWG is attached.   I suppose I have to issue some graphics update for the block after I modified in in my code. I think this is just what the blockeditor does when a modified block is safed. Does someone know how to do that?   Cheers --Thomas

  • Issue#51403: Autodesk - Update Item Lifecycle state using REST API fails - 500 Internal Server Error

    I have a .NET application that creates Items and BOMS in PLM360 from another datasorce using the REST API. On most of the occations when I upload a larger set (>20) of Items to PLM360, ~10% at least will fail to update the Life cycle state with an 500 - Internal Server Error as response. This happens randomly within the Items in the uploaded data set and most of the time it's on newly created Items in state "Unreleased". In a smaller data set, this happens more rarely. If I run an update on a failed Items directly after the first upload completes, it will succeed changing the life cycle state on the Item.Creating Items and building BOMs, fails almost never, it's just the update of the life cycle state that seems to have problems. The request and payload looks like the example below: <item>  <release>A</release></item> Any idea what co

  • Issue#51408: Autodesk - Revit 2016 R2, R2 Update 1, R2 Update 2 - DWF Export API - Unrecoverable Error

    Backstory I have a custom add-in for exporting to dwf sheets from both the main and linked models using a single interface.  It works by first exporting sheets from the main model,  renaming them to a friendlier format, then opening a blank project and closing the main model, then opening the first linked model, and then finally exporting sheets from the linked model and renaming them.  This process continues until sheets from all involved models have been exported and then it opens back up the main model. IssueThis program has been working from Revit 2014 to Revit 2016 Service Pack 2 but since the release of Revit 2016 R2 it has stopped working.  It now fails after it has finished exporting and renaming dwfs from the main model.  It throws an unrecoverable error and then Revit just fully crashes.  When debugging I find the following exception:System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception was unhandled Message: An unhandled exception of type 'System.

  • Issue#103481: Autodesk - Title block boarder not printing

    Hi there, I am looking for a little printer setting help.  We have 4 Win 7 64-bit ACE2014 stand alone work stations.  One of the work stations has decided to stop printing the outer line of all four sides of the title block when printing selected to Extents. This has just started happening in the last couple of days.   Printing a Window selection will work just fine.  The other three work station print fine.  It is just the one work station that when print selection is to Extents, it acts like it selects an offset of 1/16 inch to the inside of the drawing boarder so everything prints except the skinny little line that makes up the outside boarder on all four sides of the drawing.  All four machins are networked to the same 11x17 printer.  Anyone have a suggestion?  Thank you
