Layout Automatically Updating?

Recommended Posts

I finished a layout and decided later that I want to show a reference layer showing existing conditions underneath the proposed plan.  My layout will not automatically update and the DBX is grayed out.  I did not send over from layout as an image - it should be live.  Why isn't it updating?  Thanks.

By adding a reference layer you have modified the saved plan view "Working Plan View." You will either need to save the plan view or if you switch to a different saved plan view CA will prompt you with a dialogue on whether you would like to save the modified plan view.

Thanks Rene - Is there a button to save the Working Plan View in its current state?  If so, I cannot find one.

Just FYI, you can also simply disconnect the layout box from any Plan View by selecting “None” in that dropdown.  Then you can modify whatever you want and even optionally create a new Plan View from that.

You should probably not send the Working Plan View to layout.  Not unless you want to have to unlink every layout box afterwards.

 

Generally, it is better to create new saved plan views for every unique view you want to send.

Thanks again Michael.

Dermot - I appreciate the link.  Will look at that tonight.
