I can't seem to find the answer to this one issue I have with the workflow of placing drawings into layouts.
In Archicad 22 when placing a drawing onto the layout, the view would automatically have all settings as in my plan/section drawing ( same layer combination, same pen sets, same renovation filter, etc...). The system was perfect for me and everything was easy.
In Archicad 23 when placing a drawing onto the layout the view has to manually be adjusted to fit what I could see in the plan/section view...
Is there a way to make placing the views into layouts work like in Archicad 22? Make them automatically use the settings last used on said drawing before placement?
It seems like such overkill to make the user set everything twice...
The Project Map view points do not contain any settings for layers, graphic overrides, scale, etc.
They are simply what you currently have set.
You should really create a View in the View Map - these views contain all the settings you need.
You can even go into the settings of the view and alter them if you want.
When you drag from the Project Map you will find it actually creates a view in the View Map for you - should be based on the settings you currently have on screen.
I think you are better to create these views yourself and set it up as you want.
You can even create folders in the View Map to organise these views and also you can 'Clone' the Project Map folders so you don't even have to create the views - as you add a section, a section view will be created in the View Map in the section folder you cloned.

I was hoping for a solution that could take me to the previous workflow. It required no other extra clicks and it was very intuitive: this is what I see in my workspace then I take the drawings to the layouts, why on earth would I want to see something else in the layouts using this order of operations is beyond me...
Now I have a better understanding of the issue. I will try to change my workflow or maybe just return to Archicad 22.
