Asked before but never answered, can annyone explane what you can do with annotation views, i'm not getting it clear from he help.
Is it possible to view annotation views in a drawing ?
Attached is a print out of what I found...It looks like yes you can use the views in the drawing - but if you change a 3D annotation in a part, the drawing is not updated.
I have never used this function, but I hope this helps.
yes, you can use your annotation views in the drawing, instead of choosing the view orientation with the bottons look at the list below them. the ones with (A) at the beginning are annotation views.
but as, mentioned they are not linked, it is a one way, one time copy.
The question remains- What is an Annotation View. Help does not help.
I teke it to mean that the selected annotations are displayed in model environment when the (A) view is activated.
That did not work. Annotations went away.
My objective is to find a method to maintain the display of one or two sketches with the dimensions remaining in sight while editing another sketch or feature. The SWK display all annotations is unwieldly.
Sketches are not handled by Annotation Views. Annotation Views are a tool used in the modelling environment for annotations that are created in that environment, such as reference dimensions and notes. You an isolate annotation views to show only annotations from a particular view or set of views in the model. All annotations on a particular view are aligned/oriented to be ideally seen when that annotation view is flat to screen.
Thank you for the overview of Annotation View, Matt. My VAR person too was not familiar with the topic.
We just updated to SW2018, never noticed the Annotation View option for drawing views before (see image below). I find that if I uncheck the option in the drawing, all the annotations in the drawing view are deleted and cannot be retrieved. Why is that? I created them in the drawing, not the model. It's definitely a bummer to loose all that work.
I do find, though, if I delete the Annotation Views in the model, then the drawing annotations are preserved.
I am not sure how these Annotation Views got created in the first place. I don't think I did these manually. Is there an automatic creation of Annotation Views in some cases?
