Layout Box Border

Recommended Posts

Do we not have a control to display selected layout box borders?

When Layout layers are used ALL of the layout boxs get borders displayed. This would be an unusual situation that I needed all borders displayed.

No.  Not true.  You can place any layout box border onto any layer you want and then turn only that layer on.  Layout boxes are unique in that the layout box itself doesn't actually have a layer.  It's the border that has a unique and definable layer.

Umm...what? I think he is talking about the layout view borders controlled by the layout layer. Of course you can place a box and turn it off, but that wasn't the question.

I understood the question.  Select a Layout Box (what you're calling a "layout view") and open it.  Click on the line style tab.  You'll find that the layout box itself doesn't actually get placed onto a unique layer.  It's only the border that gets placed onto a unique layer.  Turning on the Layout Box Border layer only turns all borders on because all borders are getting placed onto that layer by default...

Michael is 100% correct.  Just make a new Layer and set that layer to display.

You can control the border on a per box basis by using a different layer.

You can control the box contents by using a different layer set.

Oh, that's good news.

Off to create a new layout box layer. :)

Also, if you have Layout Box Borders set to display, you can turn off the display of the borders on a border by border basis by using the "invisible" line type for that particular layout box.

 

Or, you can go the other way and make the default line style for the Layout Box Borders "Invisible".

You can then use a normal visible linestyle on a border by border basis if you want to display the border.

Good tip Glenn,

Can you make the border line type default to invisible?

In the Layout Page Display Options dbx, change the Line Style for the Layout Box Borders to "Invisible" and save as your default.
