Steps to try it:

  1. click on the hand button and select the element you which to renumber.
  2. define which parameter should be used for implementing the numbers.
  3. define what is the start initial digit.
  4. Category selection:
    1. due to the fact Family instances might be set to a subcategory. this option will help specifying what Category you want to update number for.
  5. if you want to add suffix/prefix, you have this option*
  6. Number Mode:
    1. Normal Renumber: it will look for all elements that have a value less than what is mentioned and ignore it, so it will continue numbering the higher values.
    2. Renumber All: It will renumber everything starting from the initial mentioned above.
  7. View Based:
    1. Active View: Renumbering all elements only visible in the current view.
    2. All Project will number every element in the project.
  8. Element Type:
    1. Type Based: means Renumbering all elements of the same Element Type.
      1. Ex.: if you have 3 types Block walls (Block 200, 300,100) and you want to renumber all of 200. then this is your option
    2. Category Based: means Renumbering all elements of the same Category Type.
      1. Ex.: if you have 3 types walls (Block ,Glass,Curtain) and you want to renumber all of Block. then this is your option
  9. Start by Selection:
    1. this will allow user to only renumber what he select inistantly on the project.
  10. Run for All: Start Renumbering as configured.
  • if Pref/Suf is specified and Normal number is selected, the app will look for the elements that doesn’t have any marks at all, or have the same prefix and suffix and start numbering.
    • ex.: if you specified in the project wall mark: “WL-01-G
      • then you need to write as follow:
      • Pref: WL-
      • Suf: -G
    • so the app can work as intended.
  • if Renumber All is Checked, then Prefix and suffix will be ignored.
