Hi,

I'm working on a 5 levels building that is in X shape, since i cant fit the entire plan on a single sheet i have many dependant views, what i want is, i want all my section tag/marks to look uniform in all views. right now they all are in different in each view, and not looking same in all the 5 levels....any help/tips to get them to look in the same place accross all levels.

 

Thx.

W

Your question is not clear.  The cut position for sections and elevations is the same everywhere.  You can adjust the 2D location of the tag somewhat depending on what it is.  A section head/tail can be moved in/out as needed for the view.  An elevation marker can be moved anywhere - depending on needs - but these are only in the view.

 

So, if you don't want them moved in other views after initial placement .... don't! <<< To not move them, I think, is a poor process.  You can move them so other items in that view are not interferred with.

I got your point. my question is that the section marks are put in place already. i'm talking about 2D location of section marks, is there any way to make then look or fall in same place across all levels, as they were draged in and out while working on Annotation plans, since there are 5 levels and it is lot of adjustment to do it on all levels and in all views.

Thx

Copy and paste aligned to current view or selected view and select the views you want to place it in.

Still the same answer - sorry.  There is no "default" you can return them to and no way to set them across multiple views except for their initial placement.

 

^^^ If this really is a problem for you, your answer is above.  You cut a new section exactly where you want it in all views and copy/paste from the original section all annotative elements.

 

Good Luck!  I think you have to bite the bullett and learn to check all views to adjust these.

Are you an engineer?  

This really doesn't matter to me.  I see no need for my views to all look the same .... even being in the same exact loction on every sheet doesn't matter to me.  What matters is that I can move the view indicators enough to show what needs to show and I think there are a lot of users like me.  Maybe because we started by hand drafting and believe me, no two plans had the section indicators in the same plac on every sheet ... they even moved back and forth!

This bothered me for a while too but I finally broke the code. Hopefully I can explain clearly. The changes you make to a section mark will only effect the section marks on levels above and once you make a change on a higher level the levels below are still linked to the lowest level but not the higher levels. So if you make a change to a section mark on level 3 it will change the section marks on levels 4 and above but not level 2 and below. If you then make a change to a section mark on level 1 it will change the section mark on level 2 but not levels 3 and above because you changed them before.Dependent views are similar in they will follow the levels below but if you have multiple dependent views of a level they will follow the most recently created dependent view.I hope that all makes sense and answers your question.
