PDF viewport layer control

404 Views, 2 Replies

If you have more than one PDF overlay, you might put them on separate layers.  Generally speaking in this case, the PDF extents overlap so when i plot different sheets, I would want only a single PDF to be visible.

 

So, my first thought was to freeze the layers of unwanted PDFs in the viewport.  Except, once i did that, nothing happened.  So, i guess i have to manually freeze the layer when plotting each sheet?  I then can't publish the layouts as the appropriate PDF's won't be visible.

 

Anyone have ideas?

 

Thanks

If they were used all at the same scale, that would work. I have 2 at one scale and 3 at other scales.  Ironically, the 3 at the larger scale aren't a matchline scenario. But more of a turn of the head to focus on another area of the site.

 

Thanks for the reply! Good thought about clipping.  Had slipped my mind.

 

Thanks
