Solidworks "Move View in Drawing" option

Post by mccrisco » Tue Sep 22, 2015 8:31 am

In previous driver versions for Solidworks, I was able to select individual drawing views and be able to move them with the Spacepilot. This was an option that you could choose to have on or off. Many people at my company used this option to quickly move views around. You could just select one main view and the projected views would move along with it. Now we have to have to Control select all the views if we them to move together. Is there a good reason why this option was removed? Is it possible to write this option back in for Solidworks?

Thanks!

Hi Nick,

the option is still there, but not the 3Dconnexion toolbar. You can map this function to one of the buttons. You find this in the SOLIDWORKS category -> 3Dcontrol -> Toggle Sub-Part Movement.

Thank you! I thought that option would only work in the model environment and not the drawing, but it works!
