IDW View Partial Update

114 Views, 3 Replies
11-01-2002 08:04 AM
After updating a part, I noticed that one of the drawing views didn't update fully. The dimensions "think" that the
view was updated, since the hole center marks and dimension leaders are all positioned where the geometry
SHOULD be. But the actual geometry didn't update. This only occurred in the base view - all of the projected
views updated properly. I've tried forcing an update by checking and unchecking the defer updates option, but
no luck. If I create a new base view (of the same view), the geometry is properly updated. Any ideas? I would
ordinarily just say a few choice words, delete the view, and "simply" create a new one; but this is the base view
(of course), and my whole sheet is based on it...

Think you can Edit View and un-tick the base view
reference to make the views independent.

Nate.  Have you selected the view and hit the
local update icon (lightning bolt)?  Might work.

Ahhhh, so you have to select the VIEW to get the
lightening bolt! I learn something new every day.
Thanks!
