Hello - When I create my assy dwg I show both a top and bottom view on a single sheet of my assy dwg. I do this by turning on the appropriate layers for the top bottom view, creating an ipf (.plt) file of this view and then I bring it in to a new layer for the bottom view. I mirror this detail before dropping it on my dwg so that the components and reference designators are viewed as if from the bottom. (Text is right-reading) Although I target my new layer for this detail prior to placing it the detail will always switch automatically to a Manufacturing "Pen" layer. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
Hi - I have seen this happen before when trying to load a plot on a Subclass under Class Manufacturing, regardless if it was a newly created Subclass or not. I load my plot files on Class Drawing Format to avoid the issue. I also reset the Class and Subclass under the Options tab regardless if it was set correctly.
Hope this helps,Mike Catrambone
