This 14 minute lesson looks at some additional advanced and miscellaneous options for Views. One can set a View to include a zoom (a viewing and magnification position in a drawing window) for use when placing a Drawing of that view onto a Layout. It is often convenient, however, to turn off that zoom, by clicking “ignore zoom” or using the “no zoom” setting (depending on which version of ArchiCAD you are using), so that when switching from one View to another one doesn’t “lose one’s place” by jumping out from the current view onscreen to another position in the drawing.
An additional location is available for saving and quickly accessing specific zoom positions for a particular drawing – the popup “zoom options” menu available just to the right of the percentage scale factor in the bottom left navigation area of each drawing window.
Views can be set for 3D as well, either for the 3D Window or for Photorenderings. These views can include additional settings based on the current context at the time of creation, including marquee cutaways.
An easy way to place the current view of a window onto a layout is the “Save View and Place on Layout” command, however it can cause management issues unless one returns to the View Map and gives the new View an appropriate name. In addition, the common practice of creating views with “Custom” layer combinations is shown, along with a suggested Best Practice of reworking custom layer contexts into named Layer Combinations that are then used in updating the View Settings.
