New Data Shortcut Functionality in Civil 3D 2008

If you haven't moved from Civil 3D 2007 (SP3) to Civil 3D 2008 and you use data shortcuts here is another reason you may want to upgrade.

In Civil 3D 2007 (SP3) data shortcuts where located by object handle and name. In 2008 they changed how the xml file is created and now the data shortcut only cares about the object handle. This means that if you start out with Street A type names for the alignments you can change them to the actual street name once you get them.

As an added bonus the program makes the change when you bring the file forward from 2007 to 2008. So if you have this problem currently, now is a good time to upgrade.
