Hi Im trying to aling floor plans on different sheets. I usually do it with reference planes, but for some reason the file Im working on does not allow me to snap to reference planes or gridlines in the viewport. I've checked the sheets visibilityGO and both grids and refplanes are visible. Cant seem to figure out why this method is not working on this file.

Any ideas?

Here is the method I use to align floor plans on sheets. (I use reference planes but works the same with gridlines.

  1. place a refplane/grid in the floor plan as reference that shows in all my floor plan views.
  2. place the floor plan 1 in a sheet
  3. draw an annotation line (on the sheet not the active viewport) that snaps to the refplane/grid end point, and copy it to theclipboard
  4. go to next sheet and do a paste in place. which will put the annotation line in the samae place as previous sheet.
  5. place floor plan 2 on sheet and then do a move command snapping from the refplane/gridline endpoint to the annotation line endpoint.

hope that made sence. I've always been able to doit like that in all my files. for some reason the file im currently working on does not allow me to do step #3. This is a file that I was handed over and i think the previous person must have disabled something accidentaly and I cant figure it out.
