Its not unusual to show a key plan with view frames. I understand they are hard coded not to display. Anyone have a quick work around?
No. I refer to "View frames" created for plan production sheets. But thanks.
Dang! we did that and they did'nt show. must be some nesting in the style. Thanks Jeff.
For the key frame view:
Create a “Key View Frame” VF style (for example with a thick border) and assign it to the view frame that is covered in the current sheet. You may want to “bring to front” the view frame that is highlighted. If you want to hide the other VFs – either you can create a “No display” or modify the existing VF style and turn off the border display.
You will also have to change the layer setting of the VF (C-ANNO-VFRM by default) to plot because the default for that layer is no-plot. Doing this has a side-effect that the VF border may be visible in all sheets. If this is a problem, create a different layer to be used by the Key View Frame.
For this to work, it's you shuld have one sheet per drawing. If you have multiple layouts per drawing, this technique would not work as the same VF would be highlighted on each sheet which may not be what you want.
Thanks we will give that a try
