View focus used in drawing file.
In which case do we use the lock view focus, I understand the essence of Lock view position.
can anyone explain me in details?
Lock View Focus = Active view. While the view is active, any geometry or annotations created anywhere on the sheet will be associated with that view.
Lock View Focus allows you to add sketch entities to a view, even when the pointer is close to another view. You can be sure that the items you are adding belong to the view you want. You can also double-click a view to lock the focus
Can you explain in details.
Its the definition in help i couldn,t understand.
When you have multiple views in a dwg and your insert annotations, as you drag across views they will highlight and you may place your annotation in the wrong view. when you move a view you will see if everything thats supposed to moves with it. If you lock the view focus everything you insert will be in that view.
Nothing better then the explaination inside of the help file.
It also comes in handy when you work with your coworkers models and assemblies! There are at least 10 blue billion ways to go about things in our software and views, or lack thereof, set up by the author may not be intuitive or make any sense to the editor.
For instance. I'm assigned an assembly that needs a quick edit only to discover the author never bothered match any of the assembly planes to any of the part planes. When you throw an assembly into space from the start and then use lock mates based on said initial assembly planes.
(Not that it has ever happened.)
