Automated Working Plane to match working view

Recommended Posts

re: Automated Working Plane to match working view

If memory serves me well (in past VW releases) when switching to a different view VW did not leave the working plane "behind". Typically we do NOT use the working plane in any special way.

Work flow example: Place legacy 3D / 2D Hybrid Symbols in the Top / Plan view, arrange and group as needed. Switch to standard Front or Right Ortho Views to add or edit an item.

Example: Draw a 2D (Screen) Rectangle. Snap to one Symbol or group, snaps work as set. Attempt to snap to another symbol. Unable to select some (desired) points? Stop.

Pick Menu item, Modify / Working Plane / Align Working Plane with Current View. Start the drawing process again. Snaps work as expected. (Layer Option is set to "Screen Only"

It appears in this sequence that the working plane remains in the original Top / Plan View (Was this also a feature in the past?) The indicator is the fact that the the snaps do not work as expected in a Front Ortho View.
