unable to use "Named View" that is sectioned in my drawing

nicholas_withamnicholas_witham Member Posts: 13
In this document
In my sub-assembly "Carrying Frame_1" I have a named view "Gridmesh Plan (Section)"
I also have a couple other named views.

When I try to use the "Gridmesh Plan (Section)" in drawing "098-M-00007", I can only see the option to use the other named views, but not the one I need.

Is there a restriction from using a sectioned named view in a drawing? Or maybe is there another way to import that named view?

    Currently named views with sections or perspective views will not work. We will address this sometime in the future.
