Change ID overriding

Anonymous
Not applicable
For some reason Change marker IDs are being overridden between the model and the layouts when working in AC21.

In the model the markers show CH-06 for example, which is the correct change ID; however in the layout the marker ID is overridden by B-2, which is the Revision ID, along with the number of the change within it.

On the Issue history Index the CH-06 ID is shown, but then in the Revision history object the B-2 ID is shown!

I can't make head nor tail of it, can anyone offer a reason for this, and a solution? There is also the issue of not all markers drawn in the model showing up in the Layouts which we know is an issue in AC21...

Cheers

In the Navigator, activate the Layout Book, select the Layout Book item at the top of the tree structure, right-click and use the "Book Settings" command to open its Dialog.
In the "Numbering of Changes in Revisions" panel, is the "Number by Revisions" radion button active? If yes, then try switching to the "Use Change ID" radio button and see if that helps.
Since this is a Layout Book setting, it will affect all Change IDs displayed in the Layout Book.
