Named view sort order

51 Views, 1 Replies

When creating dwf files using AutoCAD 2000 that contain named views, the
sort order of these views as displayed in VoloView Express is NOT based on
the view name/description, but appears to be rather on the order these
objects were created.

For example - I create named views in AutoCAD named: Node 001, Node 002,
Node 003 etc. Then create a dwf file of this drawing. When displayed in
VoloView express, the named views may appear in the dialog box in this
order: Node 002, Node 001, Node 003 etc.

Now, the problem is I may have hundreds of named views in each drawing - so
it gets really confusing looking through this list in VV. In AutoCAD, the
named views are always sorted by name, as they should be in VV Express, but
are not.

Any ideas or workarounds?

Thanks,

I noticed the same problem. The Named Views sort in Whip but not in Volo
View. I believe Autodesk is aware of this and hopefully they will fix it in
a future update.
