Bug copying linework to worksheets in 27

there seems to be a bug where copying linework (lines, polylines, arcs, etc) from a story onto a worksheet changes the pen to something totally arbitrary - and it's not the same pen for different people. Anyone else noticing this?

Had someone in a different firm - at the other side of the country -

try and they had the same result but even weirder - the pen changed to a blank unknown pen...

Hi Tania.  I tried to reproduce... just using the standard US empty template... and couldn't get anything weird to happen.  I'm wondering if this is related to Teamwork or custom attributes in your file (which would still be a bug of course!) - or if you're not on the current build of 27  (5003) in case this is a bug that's been fixed in what I'm running?

 

Assuming no TW, and that by some miracle you have a little free time... in case this is attribute related (vs corrupt file) - maybe you could make a temporary copy of the project file, create an empty project from the default template (or save all attributes to an attribute manager file) - and then open the temp copy and in Attribute Manager overwrite all existing attributes (all types) with those from the default template project and see if the behavior repeats?

 

Also, new project from default template, then in Attribute Manager overwrite all attributes with the ones from the project exhibiting the bug, draw some lines, and see if it reproduces there.

Hi Karl, this is a teamwork file and it is not corrupt - it's actually happening on two separate teamwork files - the same bug has also been experienced by a colleague at a different firm with a totally different tempate to ours.

I am installing the 5003 hotfix today to see if the bug has been addressed. We have tried replicating it in the OOTB template and it doesn't occur, but like most firms, we want the flexibility of creating our own attributes. I'll run the tests you mentioned if I have some time this week, but since this is not isolated to our firm, this has to be a bug. I will keep you posted.

Thanks
