View Full Version : renumber points
2011-10-06, 07:16 PM
I would like to complete renumber the points in my drawing. Some are at 40000 some are at 1, 2, 3 etc. The only way I can see to renumber them is to use the renumber command and add or subtract a additive factor. Is there a way?

Export the points to a CSV file. Open it in Excel, delete the Pt Number column, import the csv using the same format you exported with, sans the point numbers. It will assign new numbers, starting at the Next Point Number set in the drawing's Point Setting defaults.

There's also the PackPoints VBA macro I wrote a few years ago...http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/AutoCAD-Civil-3D-Customization/Pack-points/td-p/1679145/page/2 go to the last post. It would likely need to updated for use in newer versions.

Wouldn't the export to CSV method also require that you delete all the points after exporting them? If any points have been moved to a dragged state, when you re-import the csv, those modifications will be gone. Is there no destructive way to renumber? It seems there a native command that would order points numerically, or by any other field of my choosing would be a huge improvement.
