Removing curves and surface from drawings

SOLVED

Re: Removing curves and surface from drawings

The save status window doesn't show up until you make a change. Once you hide or unhide the layer, then the save status is activated.

Re: Removing curves and surface from drawings

Ah, yes, but if you get the warning, there is a view that has an unsaved status. You have to activate -that- view in the dialog to get the save option available.

As far as I can tell, you cannot save "all" changed layer states at once.

I was battling a drawing like this just this morning. And it wouldn't pay attention to what I told it to do. I ended up closing, erasing, and re-opening to get it to show what it should have shown to begin with.

Re: Removing curves and surface from drawings

There is only one save status per drawing no matter whether you have made the views independent or not.

BTW, I recommend not controlling the view layers independently for each view unless you have a real good reason to do so. If you need to make a layer change in the drawing, you end up having to go to each view to make the change. Not bad for a 2 view drawing...horrendous for a 10 sheet 50 view drawing.

Re: Removing curves and surface from drawings

That would be good if they all saved at once. I don't know what happened this morning. I had 7 views in a drawing. Each parts had a layer called BORDER. I turned this off in the drawing and one remained although it was in the list of hidden layers. Once I cleared memory and reopened the drawing, all was good.

Most times, I only use layers for drawings. And inevitably, it is why I need to use hidden layers by view rather than the drawing, simply because one lousy view needs a layer shown and hidden in all the others. It is an evil dance. This is also why I do not use all those layers in templates. I have very specific purposes for layers.
