Variable size of the section and axis symbol depending on the view window

Link the size of the section and axis symbol to the window size in layouts. For example, in house projects, the ground floor drawing is larger than the roof and the symbols need to follow the size of the drawings on the sheets.

Just use 'linked' markers in the roof view.

They can be positioned where ever you want, but that can link to the original section marker in the plan.

Hello Barry.
Yes, I know about this feature, but in a project with several different floors this ends up being a lot of work. There could be a simpler way to do it. For example, there could be a link between the drawing frame window on the sheet and the resizing of markers.

So you would place a section/elevation marker in a home storey and that would be the true width of the section/elevation.

Then you set it to display on some/all storeys and adjust the position of the markers to suit the model on each storey.

 

That is exactly what a linked marker does.

It is just you have to actually place a linked marker on each storey instead of adjusting the position of the marker on each storey.

Not a lot of extra work if you ask me.
