Problems / Re: Ghosting in Sheet View
« Last post by mitchb on January 24, 2020, 03:00:12 PM »
I'm not having the ghosting problem. I have V11 build 1441 on O.S. Mojave. This may be a build or O.S. issue. There have been some problems reported with Catalina but I don't have a list of the known issues. See if there is an upgrade.

Enjoy

Problems / Re: Convert layers to sub-layers

Thanks, Mitch.  I'd found that method already, but it's pretty tedious.  I wondered if there was a simpler way, rather like the drag-and-drop method of changing the layer order.

I've just tried this with another file and it's exactly the same.  To narrow it down, I can clearly see that it's the main model that's showing through, causing the ghosting.  I have no idea why.

Hey Mitch - thanks for that.  I really thought you had it there - I hadn't spotted the unresolved links (though it did keep warning me every time I saved it, so I should have done!).

However, having done that, I'm afraid it's not resolved.  The ghosting is still there.

Note that, on your PDF, you don't appear to have "phonged" any of the views - it only happens when you do this.  If you just leave them all as polylines (which is what I normally do), it's fine.

I'm attaching the drawing with the links resolved.  Let me know if you have any trouble recreating the problem.

I am entirely familiar with the Page Layout process, but nothing I do there makes any difference to the issue, so far.

Pete.

I have found a better way to remove the partition in layer 12. Isolate layer twelve and convert it to surfaces. Remove the two surfaces of the partition and then use the stitch tool to build it back to a solid.

Problems / Re: Convert layers to sub-layers
« Last post by mitchb on January 23, 2020, 10:20:27 PM »
The easiest way I know how to do this is to first create the new sub-layer then isolate the layer to be moved and select all (cmd-A or double click on the select arrow icon). In the Inspector "Object properties" "Attributes" tab select the desired sub-layer, then Ok. Make the sub-layer visible and check it.

Something happened to you while creating section B-B. There are a bunch of unresolved links there. In the Entities tab right-click on the first unresolved ling and then "Force Resolve Links" you may need to do this several times to get them all cleaned up.

Before printing, you need to set up "Page Layout". Select your paper size, scale size then "Align Center". If scale size is not needed then just "Fit To Area". Uncheck "Preserve Annotation Size". Click Ok. Select "Print" and if the preview looks good then in the PDF dropdown click on "Save As PDF". If you need more help with "Page Layout" just ask.

Enjoy

Sorry Mitch - yes, that would be helpful, wouldn't it!

Here it is.  I've removed the title block etc, but everything else remains.   I've left it with the Sheet View 1 visible.  If you go to print that, you'll see it's fine.  Just change one of the views to Phong with edges and you'll see the problem when you try and print.

Thanks for your help!
