Inventor 2012-Drawing Break View

213 Views, 1 Replies

In the Drawing mode. I have some of the lines I override with a different layer rather than default layer. When I place a break view in my drawing it automatically changes the layer to default again. How to resolve this issue to stop auto switching.


Thanks in advance!

I've tested both changing an edge properties, and reassigning it to another layer without seeing the issue you''ve described. I inserted new views, made broken views & break out views of it as well as the view with the modified edges and they are retained. With and Without the Enable Background updates enabled.


I'm out of ideas to test. Would it be possible to post an example file?


I tested in 2012 SP1.
