Hello, Is it possible, in a drawing, to define a default reference set for new drawing views? I see how I can pick an arrangement, but I don't see where I can pick the reference set. When adding a new drawing view, I'd like to be able to pick which reference set I want to use. I looked in drawing preferences, but I couldn't find anything. Thanks
Reference sets define what is loaded with the component. You cannot have a single component and show different reference sets simultaneously on the drawing. When you change the ref set, the component updates and the existing views go out of date; when updated, they will show the currently selected ref set.
What exactly are you trying to accomplish? There might be another way to get what you need.
When adding a new drawing view, I'd like to be able to pick which reference set I want to use.

@cowski1, I inherited a lot of NX parts that I have to work with but many aren't consistently defined. Some have reference sets and some don't. When bringing those parts or new parts into a drawing, I'd like to be able to select the reference set that I'm wanting displayed in the drawing. I know that the new parts will have the correct reference sets, but the old ones may not.
@BenBroad, thanks for the info. At least I can quit looking for a solution in preferences.
As @BenBroad told, curremtly there is no support to select reference sets while creating Base views.
You need to first set the required reference sets of the individual parts in Assembly Navigator & then place the drawing views.
a workaround can be to add a two same component in the assembly of the drawing and create an arrangement, where in one arrangement you have a component in the reference set and the other suppress and viceversa.
I tried to workout the solution as you suggested. But for some reason I'm unable to achieve the desired result.
Could you record and post the video, how this has to be done.
Thanks in advance

attached a file with relative drawing with the suggestions applied.
Thanks for the replky and attachement @cubalibre00
That explains how different reference sets can be used simultaniously in a context assy.
However, the similar results can be obtained with a single reference set and having control over the layers.
Am I interpreting it right ? or missing something there ?
