ChangedNew Sheet database changes. When a sheet is inserted to a drawing it is NOT removed from the database. Instead it is flagged with Inserted=1, this means it has been inserted to a drawing. When this same sheet is registered again the sheet is updated in the database and Inserted is set to 0. So, Inserted=1 means the sheet is imported to a drawing and Inserted=0 means it is available for use. This means that if you forget to register or the computer crashes the sheet is still available in the database. This works even if you make changes to the sheet, like locking, dividing etc...CAM
