Please dismiss this if it has been mentioned before, but I thought I'd share something I have discovered recently and used succesfully.

In setting up many templates, I am defining and redefining views a lot of the time. This can be somewhat cumbersome in the Organizer, so I have turned to the View List to redefine my views and it works quite well. The best part is being able to see the status of all views in one window. Everything is interactive, so redefining is spot on.

The downfalls are that we can only redefine one view at a time, and there are no available parameters for Zooming, Floor Plan Cut Plane or Source View. Hopefully GS will include these soon! :wink:

Still it is pretty handy. Same interactivity can be used with the Sheet Index and Drawing List.

Cheers,

I must be missing something but isn't the View Settings... or Settings... buttons the same in the Organizer and the View Map.
I can see no difference.
Or are you redefining views in some other way?

I am selecting multiple views in the View Map and using the Settings... button to change layers, scale & model options all at once.
Or are we not talking about the same thing?

There is limited control over the zooming - none or current.
For controlling the cut plane there is a Floor Plan Cut Plane Settings... button in the view settings dialogue.

Or do you mean something totally different?
It's been a long day :!:

Ah the View List in the Project Indexes.
I thought you meant the View Map sorry.

Just starting with V10 and haven't even looked at this yet.
It does seem a little limited at the moment - hopefully it will improve.
It needs to have more settings and be customizable like the Drawing Organizer (not the drawing list) so that columns can be turned on or off as needed.

Its great that you can see all views at once - just a shame you can't do much with them.
