Can You Turn Drafting Sheets Off?

Can You Turn Drafting Sheets Off?

Can You Turn Drafting Sheets Off?

I would swear that in the old days, I could be in drafting and I could turn off a sheet and see the modeling side but still be in drafting. I am the only one who remembers this at my company so I am wondering if I am remembering something that never really existed or what?

The reason this came up is earlier today someone went to Drafting and it still looked like he was in modeling. The Navigator showed drafting sheets so I knew he had them, but they werent showing up. Finally we just double clicked on a sheet and all of the drafting turned on. That reminded me there used to be a way to turn the sheets on and off and see the model from in Drafting, but I have not been able to figure out how to do it to prove my memory is real. lol

Does anyone else remember this feature? Do we still have the ability to do that? If not, was what we ran into just a glitch?

RE: Can You Turn Drafting Sheets Off?

Yes, you can turn off the drawing sheet display. Search for "display sheet" in the command finder.


RE: Can You Turn Drafting Sheets Off?

Thanks cowski. I was thinking I was losing my mind that nobody else in my company knew it ever existed. lol

RE: Can You Turn Drafting Sheets Off?

As Cowski says it.
I think that Siemens Development is trying to make this feature disappear in the future.
It's even hidden in the Menu pull down by default.
If you have a case where in the drawing part the drawing isn't displayed, simply select the drawing in the Part navigator - then some logical command.
But the reverse requires the command finder.
