Hi, trying Stratosfear first,
if I have a surface I can use as indication of where I want the grid running through, I click that,
If I do this in perspective view then at step 2 select Plan view I lose the perspective view.
I need to activate the top view panel, then select PlanView. that works now I can pick my way through the seaplane logos.
initial testing looks good.
However if front view is active and I pick seaplane icon front, I get bottom view, if then I activate right view and click seaplane icon right I get the back view. I had to turn layer palette off to see it, I tried to drag hand it out from behind but it started rotating as if perspective view, normally the ortho views will drag across. So thats another issue being unable to drag.
tried setting Cplane using the XY method I normally use, followed your steps, with top view active I selected Top and got Top,
Then with front view lower left active pane, I then went through this SetView command again, selected Front for the front view but got the bottom !
To have to run the command each time I want a view is a bit of a pain, if I can just activate pane and click a seaplane icon and get that view, thats it.
using the set Cplane to Object as per Stratosfear, using top view to do so, then with front view active running that SetView command again, select front and yet again I get bottom view.
So neither of these two methods deliver front view, or right view. and there is that drag makes rotate issue as well.
At least now I can get top but I cant get anything else !
Why is Cplane custom such a pain ?
Do other progs do this ?
