Hi,

Do you mean the Trace & Reference function? Is something not going through for you with that? Can you give me some examples?

Thanks,

I think frankyvero is referring to 2D elements and possibly walls and beams having the same storey settings as roofs and slabs.

If so, have you tried turning them on in the Trace & Reference Palette?

Thanks for your response dkovacs, Barry is correct with his elaboration. The trace function would defiantly help the problem if it was document-able (printable).

Can print but can't document. You can't plot it and incorporate into the layouts, unless I am wrong.

Hi,

I think if you want to place drawings of different floors under each other on a layout, you don't actually need the Trace feature, you can just place a single drawing of each floor under each other on a layout. Make sure to turn the background of the drawing to transparent, and if you want the "reference" to look different, just override its pen set from the drawing settings, or save the view with an override.

Does this help in what you would want to achieve?

That is what I do, but it is very annoying.

I voted average, someone else thought is was more important than me.

Above average, but not essential?

I have one project where I have needed to place a series of hotspots on every floor in order to get them to line up consistently on layouts...

I might be missing something, but would changing the cut plane settings allow you to do what you are describing? The cut plane can be set for a view in AC21 (and maybe earlier versions). The "Floor Plan Cut Plane Settings..." are accessed in the "2D/3D Documents" section of the View Settings dialog.

Still looking?
