    Positioning a drawing view on a sheet

    Andy Coates
      Hi

      I have a custom sheet template that has a crosshair for aligning a drawing view on it. The crosshair is part of the sheet template, not the sheet format template (although I have tried both).

      What I wish to do is snap a certain part of the drawing view onto the centre of this crosshair for alignment purposes (the drawing will be sent for production and the alignment is a key issue).

      I have tried inserting a reference point on a part within the assembly (the drawings look like nested squares when viewed from the front) and I have tried selecting the sketch of the relevant part, but when I try and make the points coincident the drawing becomes overdfined and won't snap correctly.

      Does anybody have any idea of how I can snap a drawing view onto this crosshair at the relevent point? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Many thanks in advance
