Can't edit lines in layout

Recommended Posts

I just started using X9. In the past when I send an elevation to layout, I have always been able to remove unwanted lines  by using the "edit layout lines" button. Today, when I sent my first elevation to layout, I couldn't select ANY lines in the layout view.

Nope. That didn't work and now, when I zoom in on an elevation in layout the lines get all fat and blurred. I'm missing something.

It sounds like you have a "live view" for an elevation.  Try resending it to the layout as plotlines.

Well, that's a new one on me. When I restarted my computer the "plotlines" was the default. I just resent all my elevations and everything is able to be edited. 

 

Thanks!

FYI, you do not need to resend a view to layout to change it.  If you open up the Layout Box Specification dialog, you can change the view type from live view to plot lines or vice versa.  There are lots of other settings in the Layout Box dialog and some special edit tools that work with the Layout Box that allow you to make lots of changes without having to resend your views.

Select a Layout Box and click the Open Object tool.
