A view reference displays the view number and sheet number (if the view is included on a sheet) for the corresponding view. A view reference can be placed on any standard project view except a schedule or sheet view. To place a view reference on a 3D perspective view, the view must be locked. Double-click a view reference to open the target view.
Autodesk Video: View Reference
A view reference is a symbol. You can create a view reference family in the Family Editor. View reference families can contain lines, filled regions, text and labels for the view number and sheet number parameter values.
To add a view reference
- Open the view to which you want to add a reference.
NoteIf the view is on a sheet, right-click the view, and click Activate View. You are actually placing the reference on the view, not the sheet.
- Click Annotate tabTag panelView Reference.
- Optionally, on the View Reference panel, under View Type, select the type of view to display for the Target View list.
- On the View Reference panel, select the Target View (the view you wish to reference).
- Click in the drawing area to place the reference.
NotePrimary and Dependent views - View references display in the primary view and all related dependent views (except for the view that it is referencing). For example, if you have a view split into 2 dependent views (left and right), and you add a view reference to the right view to reference the left, the view reference appears in the primary view and in the right view, but not in the left view.
