That is .... I'd like to have a view frame not linked to any aligment, simply a view frame colletion. 

The goal is to can create a VF for a cartography purposes or something similar. In example a 10x10 distribution schema.


A trick can be to use a "ghost "aligment , used only to served as environment to create the VF. 

The main problem is the annoying link to aligment. 

I suposse it is imposible to avoid this , isn`t it ? 

What do you think? Thanks.

Yep - you're stuck with an alignment.  Back in the "good old days" we used to run a no-plot alignment through all of our section views in the design drawing, so that we could create section sheet layouts in another file.


Please use the Accept as Solution or Kudo buttons when appropriate

That sounds like a job for Map Books.
