Remove Detail and Worksheet Boundaries

Ken

When you create a new Detail Drawing or Worksheet – you will often see a dashed line boundary appearing.  This shows the zone that was initially highlighted in the creation of the document… and the first thing most people do is delete it!  However, the next time you rebuild the view, it will come back, and keep coming back!

To prevent this, you can uncheck the option in the Work Environment that will prevent the boundary being created in the first place.  To deactivate this option, go to Options> Work Environment> More Options:

Macintosh HD:Users:kengood:Dropbox:0. Ken - docs:bim6x:ArchiHACK:screenshots:do not draw boundary.png

Make sure Create Detail / Worksheet Boundary in Details / Worksheet Window is not checked as highlighted above. And be sure to update your User Preference Scheme!

In the BIM6x Work Environment, this option is deactivated as default.

"Chris and Link provide tremendous customer service and technical support. We run a small office in a small city, so our training opportunities are largely limited to online videos and tutorials. Chris and Link provided personalized training on a recent visit to our office, which has helped us take the next step in productivity. Using ARCHICAD on MAC computers is a no-brainer for us - especially with BIM6x supporting us so thoroughly."
