Ok, having spent many hours trying this out, im still perplexed by the way ArchiCAD handles text and layouts. Ive followed U-tube videos explain how to set up a view map, create a new view and then start adjusting this view ready for placing on a layout. Ive then followed your advice and 'traced' the layout onto the view to start placing tex, which seemed a good workflow. I (perhaps mistakingly) thought each view could be adapted using pens, filers, text, hatches etc independent of the other views. This is essentially how revit works, allowing you to 'graphically override' the model to suit the deliverable.
A few things are happening which is frustrating me, and im sure these have either simple explanations or my workflow is all wrong.
1. Ive set up both existing layout and proposed layouts and placed views onto these ready for text..
2. within the existing view, i've then placed text, and this appears on the layout.
3. This text however also appears on the proposed view, which has the filter set for 'proposed'
4. There also seems to be issued in 'tracing' these layouts onto the view. If I trace the proposed layout onto the proposed view, it looks fine, however when I go to the existing view, and swap this with the 'traced' existing layout, it appears in the wrong place.
Do I have to 'detach' each of these views to allow text, annotations etc to not infect other views.
