Recently I have been plagued by the "grey corners" in my assembly drafts that are the result of out of date models. I am aware of the drawing view tracker utility. I use models from other engineers and I often cannot repair the model links as I am not in charge of said files. This brings to me to the question, is it possible to turn off/remove the grey corners?
I wonder why the Solid Edge designers would add such a feature. I have used several other CAD packages and there are better ways to notify the user if a file/link/model is out of date. It just clogs up already busy assembly drawings. Thank you for your help.
No way to remove them except to fix the models. Essentially letting you know your views will not be correct until the links are resolved. If you are covered under maintenance, you can log a change request with your VAR to ask to optionally turn them off with another method to indicate the model "out of date" condition. This does not guarantee that it will be changed, but if you don't ask...
Tootaly agree, their should be some possibility to switch off the border. With PDM if you dont have permission to an item, you cannot update them without create new revision so you must accept borders or .... die .
In case of large number of views borders only disturb you. It was enough to implement a solution from NX where the outdated view is marked with a watch symbol in the drawing viewer list.
Log it with your reseller/VAR or GTAC.
