Drawing Models Automatically Change

Drawing Models Automatically Change

Our company makes weldment assemblies that each cutplate is dependent on a base machining part.  We then make a drawing of the weldment assembly and also add all the cut plates that make up the assembly to the drawing.  All the cut plates are detailed on the last few sheets of the drawing.  When I switch to one of these sheets it automatically sets the drawing model to the model of the first placed view, instead of staying with the current active model.  This is frustrating because you then have to set the active model to the assembly every time you switch sheets to regen all of the parts.  This was not the case in WF2.0 (what we upgraded from).  Any ideas on how to keep the active model?

The intent was to make life easier for people who document an assembly on sheet 1, then key parts on each of several subsequent sheets, and wish to be able to easily add views/tables for these other models, but it's true that a number of customers said they'd personally prefer it not to change.  So we put in a config option for it:

auto_update_default_dwg_model no

Enjoy!
