Struggling with Named positions/views in drawings
I’m struggling with Named positions in drawings:
I created 2 named positions in an assembly while the drawing of that assy already exist:
I updated the drawing (Ctrl-q).
I tried to change the view orientation of a view (=front) to a view orientation of a named position. I did not succeed!
Is that because the orientation of a view is not changeable afterwards in the view properties dialog or is there another method?
Named position/view in a new drawing of the existing assy ‘1’:
I created a new drawing of the assy with the 2 named positions.
Now the named positions did not appear in the view name list of the Insert view dialog.
Named positions in a new drawing of a new assy:
As a test I created 2 named positions in an assembly which has no drawings.
When creating a drawing of that assy then also the named positions did not appear in the View name list of the Insert view dialog.
Please can you help me?
