    Default Renumbering Tags - question

    This is a simple question guys.
    What happens if I am tagging object in viewpoints around my model.
    Item 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc.

    then all of the sudden, I delete TAG #1 from x-viewpoint and I realize it is be suited in y-viewpoint. When i go to y-viewpoint which originally had Tag #2 I want to add a new Tag #1. However since the last tag I placed in the project was #5, then new tag becomes #6. I want Tag #6 to actually be Tag #1. Is this possible? I cannot seem to find any help in the help documents other than the "renumber tool" which looks at different NWF models linked an re-numbers duplicates.

    Thank you

    I gave up on tags for pretty much that exact reason. When my users need to comment on viewpoints, I'd prefer they make a viewpoint, make comments directly on the view, and save the viewpoint in a format such as WW ( for Work Week) - Mech - ABC (users initials) - Clash # (if any) - etc. - etc.

    Viewpoints are a LOT faster when you're not trying to figure out how to renumber or worry about the tags..
    Give a man AutoCad, and he'll draw you a floor plan.
    Give a man Revit and he'll build you a house.
    Give Cadmama a couple of drinks and she'll have everyone singing Rockytop!

    Part of the problem for me with the comments it that once you place them you cannot move them, can you?
    Would please post a screen shot of your typical review viewpoint? I am starting to realize that the answer to my Q is no.

    Or you can poke yourself in the eye with a sharp stick or wait until your toaster gets red hot and jam your hand down inside it.

    All are around the same level of pain..
