Setting Default View/Projection


Recommended Posts


I have 2D PIOs that when I instantiate them, the default view is Top/Plan. What I need to do is to set the view to Front, as what is drawn by the PIOs is really a front view.

When I start a new doc, I set the view to Front but as soon as I include a PIO, it switches to Top/Plan. If I ungroup the PIO, I can then copy it to another layer and display it using whatever projection I want.

When I select the PIO in the VS editor and look at the Properties the Projection box says 'Requires 2D' and is grayed out so I cannot select a 3D option.

Appreciate any help,

PIOs with 2D & 3D elements can only be inserted in Top/Plan since it's a hybrid object.

If you read the VS manual in regards to PIOs, you should never set views or call dialog boxes from within your object. PIOs are intended to be inserted in Top/Plan.
