Referencing Saved Views


Posted (edited)

A huge workflow efficiency would be the ability to reference specific layers and class visibilities as saved in a view.


File A may contain multiple layers.  File B references File A, and in order to replicate a specific set of layers and classes seen in File A, we currently have to do this manually.


Being able to reference a Saved View would be a huge time-saver.


I am currently playing catch-up with a model.  Design Team produce ever changing 2D sketches.  I reference their sketch files and have to maintain the background data to make sure I haven't missed anything.  Referencing a set of layers associated to a saved view and have the referenced background update when the saved view changes would be extremely useful.


As with all things 'Workgroup Reference' related we need the ability to do this irrespective of choice of reference methodology.


FYI Microstation can do this.
