View port can't select reference source.

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Anyone knows why the Reference Source when creating new viewport is not available?---but when i create a new file,everything works well.Only some files(eg: this is CAD converted file) randomly cant use viewport reference source function.

Anyone can help?? thanks!

Hi,If you select create on layer and re choose a layer it should become visible. Or select to create a new Layer.

I'm having the same problem. Vecotrworks Architect 2016.

 

It happens often that I can only create a viewport that contains layers from within own document - I'm unable to click the 'Select Source' button ...

Make sure the layer you are going to be creating them on is a Design Layer and not a Sheet Layer.

I think as Jim said you can only create a design layer viewport on a Design layer (stand corrected)

This has driven me crazy so many times, and I always forget how to fix it, but this is what's typically awry for me: in the Organization dialogue box, under the References tab, there's a Settings button; on the lowest setting (Use this method to reference Vectorworks files) the FIRST circle (Design layer viewports) needs to be chosen. Hope this helps, if this was still a problem, or if anyone new is coming to this thread like I was today!
