For the record, the "bleeding thru" has always been this way.
You are right!!
I guess i never noticed..
Well, here's the prob as i see it..
In Pre 08.. When i click the drawing view button,
I get a Rectangle outline showing where the view will be.. So I alwasy just placed it on the sheet..
So, basically, i never placed views partially off the sheet...
NOW, in 08, I click the button to place a view, i do NOT get that rectangle outline..
So basically, i am now blindly clicking the mouse somewhere on screen and hoping the view will be on the sheet..
So, my Q should be, why don't i get the View outline (preview) anymore???
When I add new drawing views, I have a box, just like always. Using SW08 SP0.0 right out of the box.
When you insert your drawing view, there is a small check box in the feature manager for preview.
Sometimes its not practical, but if you first open the model and then select to make drawing from part, it brings up the view pallete from which you get a preview before placing the view.
That works, I check the Box, and get the preview of the model..
But, i still do not get the rectangular outline...
I alwasy kept the Preview unchecked before.. takes too long sometimes..
I tried it in 2008 without the preview. I still get the box.
Must be something goofed with my install??
I do not get the outline box..
With out without preview checked...
I'll just have to leave preview checked so i can see where views are being placed i guess..
Hmm, i wonder why i don't have it?
View placement seems all screwed up for me..
I click the Button,
Pick out the model from browser.
And then beside the mouse cursor there is the lil sheet icon and that's it..
There is no outline for me.. So i hold the cursor in the middle of sheet and click..
then the view appears like normal..
Auto scaling is off too.. and the parts are small and well fit withing the sheet..
Just kinda wierd..
Thanks again Eddie.
