Automatic linking of a breakview with different drawing views

Axel_KollmenterAxel_Kollmenter Member Posts: 411 PRO
Hello everyone,
I´ve got a very long part which has to fit on an A3-sheet format (Scale 1:2). I used the "Break view" tool to reduce the irrelevant length between both pins. Now I want to create a new drawing view out of my first view.
Is it possible to automatically reproduce this feature on the new view? Or do I really have to recreate this feature and hope that the final length fit to my first view lenght.

Best regards,

Axel Kollmenter

    Onshape Support-Mail:  "This is not possible yet.  We have not implemented associative sets of breaks across dependent views.  Currently you could make another set of breaks on the projected view to get this effect."

    This is the work around I would take.
    Use the line tool and draw 2 lines where you want the break:


    Then make your breaks at the lines 


    Then delete the lines and the 2 view should be close to matching



    Like I said its a work around.

    Thank you for the work around.

    I would like to ask that this become a native capability.  Honestly, I feel that this should be the default behavior, with views not maintaining the breakview being the exceptional behavior.
