Creating the Standard 3 View by the Drag and Drop Method

To create the Standard 3 View by the drag-and-drop method:

  1. Open a new drawing window.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Drag a part or assembly document from the File Explorer, and drop it into the drawing window,
    • Drag the name from the top of the FeatureManager tree of an open part or assembly document, and drop it into the drawing window.

    The views are added to the drawing.

    If you use this method to insert a part or assembly that contains annotation views, the Model View PropertyManager opens, and a preview of one view appears in the graphics area. In the PropertyManager, under Orientation, select additional drawing views to insert, then click PM_OK.gif.
