Hi I’m using RA2008. I have an issue with the display of revision clouds/tags.I hope I can explain this clearly! In our office we use revisions 'by sheet' (I think this problem would be worse when using 'by project').Basically what I want to do is display only latest revision cloud and tag on each sheet! Simple, yes? But... What if I want Sheet 101 to display revision sequence 3 with cloud and tag because it is the most recent revision on 101. And then on sheet 102 I want to display a newer revision, but I still need sequence 3 to list in the revision table on 102.I can turn off clouds and tags for sequence 3 but then they disappear on sheet 101 or I can hide the sequence 3 cloud element in sheet 102 but then it disappears from the table on 102. My current work around (which wouldn't work for 'by project') is to set up an extra 'dummy' sequence 'sequence 4' and match the date and text from sequence 3 (but have no cloud or tag displayed), un-issue sequence 3 and change properties of the sequence 3 cloud on sheet 102 to sequence 4. I can then re-issue sequence 3 and issue sequence 4. And finally I can create sequence 5 for my latest revision on sheet 102.The whole process is convoluted and I thought that there must be a better way? I hope this made sense, and someone understands me? If you have no clue as to what I'm saying, ignore this and I'll just keep on doing what I’ve been doing. Thanks for your timeLuke

Wow, that sounds complicated!  Not entirely sure what you are doing exactly but if I describe how we operate our revision process it might help. Basically we set up a new revision for each individual drawing. This would eliminate the problem you have with revision clouds not displaying in other drawings when switched off. And to keep track of which revision refers to which drawing in the revision control box we list the drawing number in the 'issued to' column. This allows you to easily find superseded revisions for any drawing and turn off the revision cloud accordingly. Hope this helps.
