SORRY FOR THE DOUBLE POSTING, BUT I FIGURED A RESPONSE IN THE 2000 FORUM MIGHT TAKE SOME TIME IF IT IS NOT FREQUENTLY USED;
WAS FREEZING LAYERS BY VIEWPORT AVAILABLE IN 2000, I TRYING TO HELP OUT A VENDOR WITH OLDER SOFTWARE AND CANNOT REMEMBER WHEN THIS FEATURE WAS MADE AVAILABLE.
Solved! Go to Solution.
THANKS PATCHY, I WANT TO GIVE THE VENDOR A SOLUTION HE CAN ACTUALLY USE, MAY JUST INSTRUCT HIM TO USE CUT N PASTE.
I HAVE A 5 SHEET DRAWING IN MODEL SPACE (SCHEMATIC)
ALL USING THE SAME TITLEBLOCK, BUT SHEET 1 ON LAYER, SHEET 2 ON LAYER 2, ETC.
YOU HAVE TO TURN LAYERS ON/OFF FOR PRINTING SHEETS, VERY BAD USE OF CAD, IMHO
>> WAS FREEZING LAYERS BY VIEWPORT AVAILABLE IN 2000
Yes, freezing of layer by (layout-)viewports was available with the introduction of viewports, otherwise viewports would not make any sense, if you can't differeciate between them
With release 2008 the layerproperty-overrides where introduced (overriding color/linetype/lineweight per viewport).
- alfred -
since they are all stacked on top of each other, in model, and paper space was not used at all, i am assuming rudementary cad skills (not meant to be derogatory, just descriptive)
i think i am going to instruct him to copy and paste to 5 layouts, and delte unessicary layers per tab.
i dont want to make it too complicated
its just been so long, its hard to remember what tools were available with what ... then again, maybe its the altheimers
what was the question again?
have you seen my keys?
