To decrease batchplotting times I would like to open drafts with "inactivate drawing view for review".
At the moment I know how to open a drawing and set it to inactive but this, obviously, increases opening times instead:
Dim documents As SolidEdgeFramework.Documents = application.Documents Dim document As SolidEdgeDraft.DraftDocument = Nothing 'close any open documents documents.Close() document = documents.Open(filePath) 'opens the document document.InactiveDrawingViewMode = True 'sets the document to inactive
Solved! Go to Solution.
Something like this, but I don't think you will be able to determine if the views are out of date in that mode.
Thank you! I never would have found it myself.
I'm well aware of that I wouldn't be able to update or determine if views are out of date.
However, when we batch export to pdf/dwg or batch plot all of our drawings have been double checked to make sure they are all up-to-date. Hence opening the drafts as inactive prior to plotting saves quite some time.
