You can apply a view template to all views on a sheet to ensure adherence to office standards and achieve consistency across construction document sets.
When you apply a view template to views on a sheet, the view template properties are applied to the views that are currently included on the sheet. However, the view template is not assigned to those views, so later changes to the view template do not affect the views.
You want to make sure that all views on the sheet use the same view scale. Create a view template (named View Scale Template) that defines only the view scale. After placing views on the sheet, apply the View Scale Template. All of those views now display using the same scale.
NoteIf any of the views has an assigned view template that defines the scale, that view's scale will not change according to the View Scale Template. The View Scale Template settings apply only to view settings that are not already defined by assigned templates.
To apply a view template to all views on a sheet
- In the Project Browser, right-click a sheet view name, and click Apply View Template to All Views.
- In the Apply View Template dialog, under View Templates, use the Discipline filter and the View type filter to limit the list of view templates.
- In the Names list, select the view template to apply.
You can use the view properties of another project view as a view template. To do this, select Show Views and select the view name in the list.
- Click OK.
- If any view in the sheet has an assigned view template, a message asks if you want to partially apply the selected template to the views.
Click Yes to apply properties from the selected view template that are not controlled by an assigned view template.
Click No to exit the message and return to the Apply View Template dialog without applying the view template properties.
