Hi Solidworks Forum,

 

I currently working on a macro, that places i specified view in the lower left corner, but inside the sheet.

 

When you place a view using a macro, the X and Y coordinated corresponds to the center of the model, where as the drawings X and Y coordinates corresponds to the lower left corner.

 

So if you place a drawing view in 0.0, 0.0 you get a drawing view where only 1/4th of the drawing is on the sheet.

 

Is there a simple way to get the size of the orange dotted line around the drawing view, so I can calculate a new set of X and Y coordinates and move the drawing view accordingly?
