Have some pre-set cameras in my template for basic b/w exterior linework views that then sync to the .layout file cover sheet - which is great in theory but my cameras don't seem to want to behave:
Of course sending to layout as an 'image' solves this - but I wonder why the cropping changes when using the live camera?
I tried a second camera view and it seemed to work more closely to how you would expect. Nearly identical cropping on these two:
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 am doing a remodel and have created a separate existing building file and am using it as an underlay to show where walls are being removed:
BUT, when I export the views to layout, they all default to the last view I export. Here I export the first floor:
So far so good. Here are the settings:
Then it all goes awry. This is what happens when I export the second floor:
And now the third...
This only happens with this one plan. Could using the plan reference be messing things up? Has anyone seen this before?

How can I speed up layout? Seems ridiculous that moving some text WITHIN LAYOUT and not even touching my synced viewports has such an awful lag time. I have a fast computer and the modeling is plenty smooth. I also have used lots of other cad software and even old, clunky dried-up CAD software doesn't have the terrible lag that working in Layout has.
I've devised ways around it - trying to do everything in my model and nothing or as little as possible in Layout - but this is just bad and seems unnecessary. What is going on within the code when moving text like this takes a few seconds?
Is this common or am I an outlier? I've posted a video of the lag time here - can anybody else corroborate this lag? Is it time for a (nother) computer upgrade, or will even DeepBlue have a similar lag time? Is it some secret setting within chief that is slowing me down like this?
