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.

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.
