Change the detail drawing properties of the "projection_type" from default 3rd angle to 1st angle.

Thanks for tip Mark. True, but that will only change the projection type of an open drawing. My idea is to change that permanently so that I don´t have to do it every time I creat a new drawing. Hon can I do it?

Change it in the Detail Configuration file (prodetail.dtl). This will probably be in your Common folder within the PTC program files. This is the file you can change many of these settings so they are the default settings in any new drawing.

Hello Vasco,

just a remark in addition to Mark's posts: The setting of the projection type affects only creation of new views. Existing views do not change with the setting (fortunately for most cases). Existing views are best moved manually to the opposite side of the parent view, if the projection type was wrong.

Please consider setting Mark's answer to "Correct Answer", if it solved your issue - and otherwise provide feedback, what is missing, so the answer can be refined.

Thanks,

Gunter
