How do I hide or show opening indicators in different camera views?


Displayed layers differ depending on the type of view you are currently in. Plan view, Camera views and Cross Section views all have different layers hidden or displayed by default. As such, opening indicators are visible in Cross Section/Elevation views, but not in other camera views, such as an orthographic overview.

You can easily toggle the display of opening indicators for different views via the Layer Display Options dialog.

To change the display of opening indicators

  1. From the menu select 3D> Create Orthographic View> Orthographic Full Overview .

  2. From the menu select Tools> Display Options  to display the Layer Display Options dialog for this particular view.

  3. Scroll down to the Opening Indicators layer, and place a checkmark in the Disp column to show openings, or remove the checkmark to hide them.

  4. Click the OK button to apply this change and exit the Layer Display options dialog.
