Convert Aligned Section View to Offset Section View


New member
I have picked up a drawing with an aligned section view in it with other views hanging off it and loads of dimensions.

It's supposed to be an offset section view so it's not "stretched out".

How do I convert the aligned section view to an offset section view so I don't have to re-create everything?

I don't think you can convert view types like that.

You'll have to create a new view. Text, drawing symbols and some dimensions can be cut & pasted from the old view into the new view. The dimensions that won't paste will have to be recreated.
