I found a new way of making view titles so you don’t have to keep coming back and editing the length of the lextension line. You know, when you drop a view onto a sheet and the line for the view title stretches the whole length of the view. Maybe you like it but I am always coming back and shortening the line so it only extends below my text.

 

Well the work around is to turn the extension line off all together. I use an underline on my view title to get the line. I add some spaces before the text (in the prefix column of the lable) so the line extends to the left through my drawing/page number indicator.

 

Check out my attached family. I am so pleased with not having to come back and mess with the line every time I insert a drawing or change the view name.

 

Hopefully this little work around saves someone else some time and makes you as happy as it makes me every time I use it.

Hi!

Awesome job! You found a very practical solution. I was looking for knowing how to constrain the extension line to the text length, but you nailed it with this simple family.

Thanks for sharing,

Ricardo.

Glad you found it helpful! Two years later, I am still proud of this workaround.
