I've set up our walls to show demo'd walls to be dashed, but I'd also like that dashed line to show up in elevation as well. Is there a way to do this, without moving the wall to a 'demo wall layer'.
I suppose I could edit all the walls so that anything that isn't to be demo'd isn't associated with the layer it's put on (remaining solid vs. dashed); but is there a better way?
I would also love for the siding/ brick, etc. to come in dashed as well if possible.
Of Course on a deadline and never experienced this in 20 years! HELP! See attached. Working on elevations. Using exactly the same cross section elevation, but one is coming up as "Active Defaults" and one is coming up as "1/4" Defaults", there is not an option for "Active Defaults" in the drop down. Creating havoc on Notes. Have not idea how to fix this. Thanks! Mardie
I am having issues with using the "active views" on Sheet Layouts. I just recently found this and thought it would save me a lot of time.
What I'm having an issue with:
1. It seems to be very slow, but I'm not sure if that's because of the file size? Or because I know have a bunch of Active Views for both Exterior and Interior 3D views?
2. After sending an active view to the layout sheet, It works great until I "File Save as" a new file (when I have to make changes to a design). When I go to "Relink File" and "Update View", it re sizes the image back to the original size, so I then have to resize / zoom the image back in large to fit onto the Layout.
Any ideas on how to keep the active image resized and only have to relink / update the view?
I have attached some Images to help explain.
thanks in advance,
I noticed small angled lines that are commonly used to indicate glass on drafting drawings on elevations from Chief (see example photo attached). Is there a way to turn those 'ON' with a glass or reflective material? Or are those being added manually?
Thanks for the help!
