Drawing View Moving on Paper When Adjusting Skeleton


New member
When I am changing a dimension on the skeleton within an assembly, the view of the assembly in the draft is moving relative to the paper border.

Is there a way of locking the position of the view so the only movement is that of the part driven by the changing dimension?

Hi rob1wal,

you can fix the origin of the view with view->modify view -> origin. Then you can specify i.e. a datum point as view origin. The location of this datum point on the paper is fixed when you set it as view origin.

hope this helps
