Orthographic layer costumization

Hi everyone,


I just started working on Plant 3d and I noticed that when I create 2d orthographic views the drawing is transfered on new layers. Also the drawing is just a bunch of blocks stuck together.


So my question is: Is it possible to create orthographic views that keep same layers as the 3d model and that create it as lines instead of blocks.


thanks a lot and sorry for my poor english!

The elements in the modelspace are not simple 2D blocks. Those include several additional informations, such as tag numbers and line numbers. And the software automatically assign the layers depending on the views you place. Different views have different layer sets.

So my answer is that I do not know that there is a way to do what you want.
