Currently I have found the best way to create layouts is to copy what I want to use into a new layer and base the layout off of that layer. This way I can come back and the layouts will not be all screwed because I changed the orientation of the model. Or moved the parts in the model.
Is there an easier way of doing this so the layouts do not change when the viewports etc do? If not is there a way to link a part from one layer to another so size changes etc automatically update?
