Change model reference in drawing

426 Views, 2 Replies

I did some digging and found the option to replace a model reference in an entire drawing, but I'm looking to change the reference in just a view. Consider the picture I have attached. I'm depicting top down views of these layers. Each layer requires changing the view identifier each time I drop a view. This would be considerably less time consuming if I could just copy/paste the view and change which part file it was pointing to. Any advice?

 

Thanks,

If a view has already been placed onto the IDW there is not a way to edit the existing view to point to another file to regenerate that view to be based off of that new file. This is by designed within the product and not possible at this time. If you would like to enter a wish list item asking for this to be considered as an enhancement for a future release please use the following link.
