creating new classes

Recommended Posts

When creating new classes in existing files, is it possible to make sure that new class created is visible in all the existing viewports and saved views?  I have to typically go back to be viewports and turn on the classes.  Thought there might be a trick when creating the new class to be visible in all existing viewports or saved views

Duplicate an existing class that is already on in those views/viewports and edit it rather than creating a new one.

See attached...  This assume you already have viewports and/or saved views in the file - otherwise the options are greyed out.

Hi Andrew, Indeed, usually you want new Layers to be invisible and new classes to be visible in all existing viewports and Saved views. The dialog doesn't follow the general logic, which is a pity but we can correct for it. However, most om my new classes are not created new in the current document but instead they come along with copy and paste from older projects. These pasted classes are all set invisible. Such a shame.  At least we should get a question about that when pasting objects with classes new to this document.

 

a bit more than 2 cts,

Kind regards,
