Design layer of different scale is not showing up on the layer i need it on

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm using vectorworks 2014 and this version seems to have a setting i can't figure out from the previous version, that we never had issues with. We are working in 2d only and in the past we would create a tittle block layer with a scale 1:1 and a floor plan with a scale 1/4:1 and interior elevations for example, with a scale 1/2:1. the tittle block layer would always show up on all other layers in correct size. with VW 2014 it does not show up. I played around with it and it would only show up if set the scale to be exactly the same, which is problem-some. Anyone knows how to fix this? sorry if I'm not making sense.

View > Unified View Options. Ensure that "Ignore layers with different scales" is not checked and then that Unified View itself is enabled in the View menu.

Normally your title block would reside only on a sheet layer, which is always 1:1, to avoid having design layers with multiple scales:


Then create viewports of the main drawing that reside on the sheet layer:
