    Default Sheet Set Fields

    When defining fields is there any distinct difference or reason for doing so by "CurrentSheet" & "CurrentSheetSet" as opposed to "SheetSet"?

    There doesn't seem to be any difference other than SheetSet mode seems to have a more definitive reassurance.

    Default Re: Sheet Set Fields

    Current* will always refer to the current Sheet Set.
    If you copy the .DST file and .DWG files with fields defined this way, the reference is relative and will always refer to the "current" sheet set.

    When you point to "Sheet Set" and then pick a certain sheet set, and sheet, etc. - those references are static and will always point to what you've selected.
    If you don't consider the possible consequences, this can be dangerous. I've found fields in a DWG belonging to project "A", referring to sheet set properties for sheet set "XX" (in other words, a totally different sheet set with nothing to do with "A").
    This can happen easily with people copying and pasting objects from DWG to DWG.
