Drafting Mode | Sketch object connected to a view so it will move with the view

(OP)
Hi All,

Does anyone know how to connect a sketched object made in drafting mode to a view so that when you drag the view to a new location, that sketch object follows along with the view?

Thanks

RE: Drafting Mode | Sketch object connected to a view so it will move with the view

The only real method is to create the sketch in the Drawing View to start with. You do this by selecting the Drawing View boundary, pressing MB3 and selecting the 'Active Sketch View' option. Now the sketch the you create will be part of the view and IT will move when the view is moved.
