Is there any way to get the VIEWBASE command to respect the layer settings when creating section views?
It help keep clarity, our plot styles are already setup, and IMO, more logical.
Create the layers in your template with the settings you want. The next time you create a drawing and use the viewbase commands the layers will already be set to what you want.
Hi, responding under my personal account...
We have template files, with layers setup, text styles, etc. I don't see the correlation between my question and template files. Please explain what you meant.
I've also rewritten the quesiton, in case I was unclear.
With the viewbase commands you will end up with only a few layers starting with MD_, those can be controlled through layer properties to display color, line type, line width, etc. You won't be able to keep the colors of the objects layer.
So what I do is have layers in my template with the MD_*** layers and set those to the color, linetype, and plot style I want them to use so I can control linewidth pretty well.
