Location Labels for Views

You can place location labels on detail, section, and auxiliary drawings views to provide the sheet and zone location for the parent view. Additionally, you can place location labels on detail circles, section cutting lines, and auxiliary view arrows to provide the location of the corresponding child view.

Sheet 1 - Parent View Sheet 2 - Child View

In this section view example, Sheet 1 shows the parent view and Sheet 2 shows the child view. The zone is determined by the centroid of the view. The location label on the parent view shows where the child view is located, Sheet 2 - Zone C1. The location label on the child view shows where the parent is located, Sheet 1 - Zone B1.
