GRID LINE TOOL VW 2021 DOESN'T STAY ADJUSTED

Question

Our firm have been using Grid Line Tool in VW 2021, which has been great so far. Though we have had one main issue with the tool. 

Our graphic standard requires the grids to be extended to the edge of the drawings. The problems are with enlarged floor plans, sections or elevations, where adjusted grid lines jump back to the crop line whenever we update something in viewport settings like crop, classes or layers. It is very cumbersome to adjust the gridlines again and again. 

See attached image for an example.

I have managed avoid the issue on sections and elevations by extending the crop to the edge of the drawings, but it is impossible to do that for enlarged plans. I am wondering how we can avoid this issue.

Complete guess without VW running. What about adding locus points into the Annotations group? maybe that would keep the "overall area" of the viewport where it needs to be to keep the gridlines from snapping back?

You can set the start and end set back for grid lines. So in the vp annotations select a grid sequence and in the oip make this adjustment to push the grid bubbles back to the edge of the sheet.

 

I haven’t tried this myself. Hopefully this works and doesn’t effect the source grid lines in the design layer and corresponding grids in other vps.

Alternative vector workaround:

Edit the vp crop so a narrow “leg” of the crop object extends to the edge of the page at each grid line.

In vp annotations place masking polygons in these legs so only the grid lines can be seen.

Thanks for the workarounds - this should go in for some engineering adjustments.  It acts like the grid points are looking for an automatic setting set by the viewport crop - if this is the case, it would be better to delete this feature if we could do a manual set once and have it stick.

I'm seeing similar issues as well.  I believe (by design) the Grid Lines should reset after reshaping the crop, but the other settings should not.
