Is it possible to save an arrangement into a custom view like one is able to do with explosions?
Is there a workaround to do this e.g. convert an arrangement into an explosion?
When you add a base view to a drawing, there is an option for which arrangement you want to use. I don't think there is any real need to save a custom view for a specific arrangement.
I know of no way with the OOTB commands to convert an arrangement to an explosion or vice-versa.
My intention to have different custom views including specified arrangements was that when I export this to JT Format, Views (and explosions therefore) are beautifully integrated as PMI information. I like to have the same with arrangements. Hope this makes sense
