Define drawing views
With automatic drawing views we mean views that you select to create before creating a single-part, assembly or cast unit drawing. You can define the desired drawing view properties separately for each view before you create the drawings.
When you create general arrangement drawings, you cannot select the views to be created in the general arrangement properties dialog box, but you select them at GA drawing creation. However, you can define automatic settings that apply to all the views you create in a general arrangement drawing.
