I have worked my way through the McNeel tutorial on layouts V5.
Placement of dims in the layout also sees them appear in the normal default views we all are familiar with.
I activated the layout pane, it loses its grey background, added some dims, looked in normal view and they were there as well.
I wish to place a custom made raster image logo and text /title into the layout view but not have it interfering in the ‘normal’ views, how is this done ?
I cannot see a way of creating a layer for text and another for the image, purely for when layout is in play, the layers palette has another set of columns for layout so one can have different colours for the same object, turn objects on/off without same happening in normal views, but a new layer would seem to be ‘across the board’.
If I have my logo and text visible=‘on’. I will end up seeing it and it will be in the way when working on the model, it may even appear in the other layout views, certainly in perspective. If I wish it to be visible in just front view, how is that done ?
I would like top, front and end views with the perspective view pane upper right instead featuring my logo and text in a small pane box, the divider between end and perspective being higher up, so perspective is just for my logo, how is that done ?
The tutorial had one do a file insert and click on the border drawn around the entire pane set, but following carefully the steps nothing happened, it should have created a whole new column, though I wouldnt want an entire column for my logo/title anyway.
