    Default Sheet List Table Wont Update

    I have created a sheet list table using SSM. If I rename a sheet in SSM and try to force the sheet set table to update with the new sheet name, nothing happens. Also, if I select the sheet set table and right click to bring up a short cut menu, the menu that appears is an edit short cut menu without any of the context sensitive tools appropriate to editing a sheet list table like "Update Sheet List Table." What's up?

    Default Re: Sheet List Table Wont Update

    Well, I answered the second part of my question by discovering that having the PICKFIRST system variable set to "1" results in the short cut menu displaying context sensitive commands. But, I am still not able to force the table to update, even with regenall or closing and reopening the sheet set or AutoCAD.

    Have you tried deleting the table and reinserting?
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    Yes, I have. The newly inserted table shows the changes made to the "sheet list" in MSS. But, I still need to use "Update sheet list table" in the shortcut menu to force an update of any future editing to the "sheet list" done in SSM. There doesn't seem to be any active link between the table and changes made to the "sheet list" in SSM such that a simple regeneration of the drawing would update it, as might happen during a save, or open, or plot, etc.

    AFAIK there is not a dynamic link between the two.

    Try clicking on the table and selecting one cell, then right clicking and choosing "Sheet List Table < Update Sheet List Table Settings or Update Sheet List table". I use this to add sheets to my table which I added to the SSM after I created the table. If you have the entire table selected and you right click, you are given an option to update the table, but that option has never worked for me (when doing it to a SSM List Table).

    The trick is to right click after you only have one cell selected.

    for starters you need to set your mouse "right click" radio buttons as in the screen shot attached.
    Not sure the pic made it?
    Then you need to pick the table but then pick just 1 cell THEN right click.
    To get the "sheet list table" - "update sheet list table" to appear.
    Hope this helps someone.
