Rolling back a rev table

Rolling back a rev table

Rolling back a rev table

Hi all,

Making a drawing just now I accidently added a couple of rows too many in a revision table (SW standard table) and deleted them.  Anyway now when I add a rev it wants to go from Rev B to Rev E.

Anyone know where I can reset this?


RE: Rolling back a rev table

The only way I know is make a copy of the existing table somewhere. Delete off the dwg. Add a new one, copy info from old table. I do not know of a way to reset it.

RE: Rolling back a rev table

Found a kind of work around, create a new revision row, change the letter in the revision balloon to what it should be then delete it (if required).  Now when adding a new row in the table it should.

Doesn't seem to update the embedded value though ie, the a note containing property linked to revision.

check the properties of hte sheet... I don't have SW in front me to test, but it might be there... not sure though...

Advice for the future, if you know you've added too many rows right a way, simply hit undo  :)  It resets the rev table's default back to its previous value.

yep, in the normal course of events my pinky and middle finger hover over Ctrl+z... in this case it was a few Ctrl+z moments too many thumbsup2
