I'm using feature lines created from utilities line work to label utility locations on section views. To avoid selecting each individual section view, I'm using Profile & Section Views, Section views, Project Objects To Multiple Section Views. This works great. Labels are placed on the Sections Views all at once, just requiring a little clean up of label locations. However, there are feature lines for other purposes in the drawing, and these are all labeled at the same time. Does anyone know a way to select which feature lines will be projected? I've been erasing the extra labels, which is still faster then placing one label at a time per section view.
Randy, objects on frozen layers are not projected.
This has been bugging me today as well - freezing my featurelines layer didn't show anything due to Style considerations so I eventually changed the layer that the feature line(s) were on and then projected and this worked well.
Another limitation of C3D I'm afraid - a very obvious requirement that takes many steps to accomplish...
I am a fan of conditional sub-assemblies. Most of our projects are road rehab, and we encounter existing utilities often. My assembly includes a conditional horizontal target subassembly, that I'v attached a LinkOffsetAndElevation sub-assembly to that has an Ex. Water Line style assigned. You could create any number of these for different types of feature lines you have in your drawing and then use them as targets. If the target is NOT found, the link doesn't appear in the cross section. I place my feature lines on separate layers for each utility, and select them "By Layer". Makes targeting pretty easy. I've inlcuded a copy of our "Master" subassembly drawing which has a few generic assemblies that you can look at to get the idea. These are in 2012.
Unfortunately, I'm still running 2011 and can't open your drawing. Sounds like a great idea, though. Thanks.
