setting drawing view defaults


setting drawing view defaults

Does anybody know the proper procedure for setting up my default drawing
views to automatically display hidden line removed and tangent edges solid?

I've tried everything I can think of (, dwg options, drawing
template) and can't figure out how to get my drawing views to automatically
be created the way I want them. it's getting annoying having to place a
view and edit the properties EVERY SINGLE TIME I create a new view!

I'm sure it's one of those things that is painfully obvious when you knwo
the way but can drive you to insanity if you don't!

thaks for the help

They are set in your drawing setup file (*.dtl):

model_display_for_new_views no_hidden
tan_edge_display_for_new_views tan_solid

Don't forget, the setup file only controls options for new drawings
created from scratch. Once created, the setting get copied into the
drawing and are independent of changes in the setup file. This also
applies to drawing templates, their settings are independent of the
setup file because Pro|E essentially sees them as drawings.

To change the behavior of existing drawings or templates, open them and
change those settings in their drawing options.
