Answer

Advance Concrete enables the method of numbering the reinforcement bars. This option is very useful when working on complex projects with a large number of reinforcement bars.

This functionality can be accessed from the AC Instruments submenu, found on AutoCAD's Ribbon, using the Preference, Numbering tab.

Depending on user preferences four options are available for new bars:
- Smallest available mark
- Last input bar mark plus one
- Highest current mark plus one
- Compare to the existing stock of bars

The Compare to existing stock of bars option applies in the following situations:
- When a reinforcement bar is copied, the assigned mark is the same.
- When a new bar is created, identical to an existing one, the assigned mark is the same as the existing one.

The Highest current mark plus one and Last input bar mark plus one options are used when you want an increasing counter, even if some intermediate marks are missing.

The Smallest available mark functionality is similar to the Compare to existing stock of bars option, without the possibility to assign the same mark to a copied reinforcement bar or to a new identical bar.
