Aligning Views

You can change the alignment of views that are not aligned by default, or views whose alignment you have broken. You can also break view alignments and return alignments to their defaults.

Alignment is automatically created for standard 3 views, section views, aligned section views, auxiliary views, and projected views.

Align Drawing View keeps related drawing views aligned to one another by limiting movement. When you drag a view, dashed lines appear to show existing alignment conditions. You can add or remove alignment from any view.
