Hello Everyone,

 

Any trick to make create a break view along a sloping edge.

So that the view still appears continuous rather that the one

shown in attached pic.

Thanks

A possible "work-around" would be to break the views alignment to its parent view and then rotate the view to a horizontal or vertical orientation. Then, you can use the break view command as normal and add the angle of rotation to the view label that was generated automatically. I would typicallly add something like "VIEW ROTATED 60 CCW" (counter clockwise). Most shops can work with that without too much confusion. It would be great if Autodesk would allow broken angled views in the next release though...
