nested viewports, update?

Recommended Posts

Updating drawing A will not automatically update the viewports in drawing 2. However, drawing 2, if open, should show the reference to drawing A in Red - indicating that the file is out of date.

What you can do is:

1) Set the reference to drawing A in drawing 1 to "Automatically update out of date references during file open". This is available via the reference tab of the Navigation palette or the organization dialog.

2) If the drawing 1 is currently open, you can manually update the reference to drawing A via the Nav palette or Org. dialog. 3) From the reference settings dialog, you can specify how often VW should check for out of date files. When you are notified that there are out of date files, you will have the option to update the out of date references at that point.

Let me know if that helps.
