Can't change drawing numbers on layout.

Anonymous
Not applicable
I always have my drawing numbers set to "by layout." When I add a drawing to the sheet, I place it where I want it on the sheet, then I move the drawing in the navigator to first, second, etc. in the drawing order. the problem is it won't let me. I have the sheet reserved, as well as all the drawings on that sheet.

This may be an issue with another post I had about the sheets not showing up reserved in my navigator but I'm not sure...

Steven,
I think that ArchiCAD is numbering correctly - according to the order they are in the Navigator.
I think if the Beam Detail @ Family Room was before the Corner Window Detail in the Navigator then they would display their Drawing Numbers the way you want.

Laszlo,

Yes, this was my problem, I couldn't move the drawings around in the navigator, so it would not let me change the numbering. Becoming team leader, or expanding my role in the BIM server manager, fixed this problem. Maybe this could have been better explained in the collaboration guide, that you have a pretty limited role if you are just "architect" in the server manager.

All works out fine now though, I will probably create custom roles for everyone here in the office.

Thanks Laszlo for being so responsive. Much appreciated (you too Karl and Erika!).
