referencing file via viewport

Question

For some reason I cannot reference external file via viewport on a design layer.  "source" is greyed out. Any ideas.

Are you sure you have a design layer selected as the target? You can't reference a file to a sheet, only to a design layer.

 

Work dialog boxes from the top down.

yes I have the design layer selected as target, I can do it in a new file but not in the one I need to do.  I have a file referenced in the old way via "organization" but deleting it did not make a difference.  This might be a Tech Support item.

It shouldn't matter how you get there.

I'm having a corrupt file issue myself - give them a call!

Hi @TKA

 

I think you have to go to the organisation dialog and choose "Design layer Viewports" 

You are only aloud to have one sort of referencing, either Design layer VP  or Layer import in each document
