Drawing Views

I have a large (20+ "B" size sheets) assembly drawingthat I have been working with. My problem is that I'll open the drawing, and section views, detail views, etc, are moved all over the sheets - including outside of the drawing format, even though they are "locked". I'll spend an entire day moving views back to their respective positions, save and check-in the drawing...and the next time I open it, they are again moved out of position! I guess I should add that the components of the assembly in question are being worked on during this time. But, I would think, if you are creating a drawing, even if it is WIP, after laying out a drawing sheet, wouldn't you expect the views to stay put? What am I doing wrong? I am using Creo Parametric 2.0

Drawing views are placed by the center of the view extents box. As you add components, the extents box changes, thus the center point moves.

Changing the view origins to be On Item from At Center.


I prefer to create a datum point and call it Origin to make its purpose clear, but anything that won't be removed is a useful target.

David, won't that daum point move as the "view extents box" changes size?

The view origin is like a push pin.


Picking On Item pins that item to a particular coordinate on the drawing. If that datum point is fixed relative to the rest of the geometry, the rest of the geometry will also be fixed relatibe to the drawing.

It looks like setting the origin "on item" is just what I was looking for. Thanks guys!

Hello Ken,


First if possible Purge that Drawing Sheet, I think some older version is effected current sheet..


Also check that LOCK VIEW MOVEMENT is on...


From this your View is Fix and Not able to move,


Check it Out,,, Hope you will get Solution....
