Aligning Views in two directions

Status: Duplicate
by catot on ‎03-19-2013 09:44 AM

When you in a drawing have a view that is aligned to an other view, I would wish I had the opportunity to align it to a second view. In other words, I would really like to have the ability to choose horizontal and vertical alignment in the same drawing view.The only choice you have when wanting to align a view that already is aligned, is to break that alignment.

It would also be great if you could select what is horizontally or vertically aligned within a view. I would particularly like the ability to align using included Origin or Workplanes. For example, I would like to be able to align views of different parts or assemblies using Origin centrline planes.

I'd also love to see being able to align detail views to each other based on the center of the view, like you can with base views, rather than what appears to be based on the relative positions of the things that they're showing.

I often have section views that I need to break alignment and then align horizontally and vertically to another view.  This would be perfect!

This alignment vertically to one view AND horizontally to an other view had already been standard in older Versions of Inventor years ago. I had a CER in July 2009 for this Fault.
This alignment was ok until Inventor 2009 SP2. But Autodesk just closed the CER without modification. (exactly like: It's not a bug, it's a feature!")
