I use a lot of view configurations when creating assembly drawings. The problem is when I change a configuration in the model, I have to go to every view that uses it, open the properties dialogue, go to display, hit the check button then update the view - over and over and over. If I have "match" already checked, why is it necessary to check it again? SE should automatically do this and put the gray box around the view ready for me to hit the update button.
Solved! Go to Solution.
There is a switch for this:
- SE Options
-- General Tab
--- 3/4 of the way down, put a check next to "Assembly configuration changes make drawing - --- views out of date in the draft file"
That should take care of the problem.
That should save a lot of time. I wonder why that setting is not the default?
No idea why it is not default. This switch was not always there. I can't recall what version it came in, but it was a pretty long time ago, maybe the early teens?
I think the SE guys are also careful to make sure that when they add new stuff that changes a behavior such as this, that change is not introduced by default as it may negatively effect a workflow that some people may have.
