Drawing View Update

By default, all drawing views are updated automatically when the model changes. You can change this behavior to manually update drawing views.

When the model changes, any drawing views that need updating are marked with a crosshatch pattern.

You cannot activate or edit a view that needs to be updated.

To manually update drawing views:

  1. Right-click the Drawing icon at the top of the FeatureManager design tree, and click Automatic view update. If there is no check mark, it indicates that manual view regeneration is enabled.

  2. Click either:

  • Edit, Update All Views.

  • Rebuild (Standard toolbar) or Edit, Rebuild.
