    Grid lines.

    Hey all,
    I am trying to do one of 2 things.

    1. I have my grids set so they don't go through the drawing. For one reason or another, they keep changing on me. Instead of staying where I put them, the gridline goes all the way to the other side of the view.

    CORRECT


    INCORRECT


    2. Is there a way to make a break in the gridlines like you can in the section cut

    Probably related to the 2d & 3d extents of the grids. Check these 2 help topics for some information.

        Thanks, I looked at it. I am hoping the end of the gridline will stay where I put it.

          I'm thinking because they were monitoring another linked model that they kept messing up and the ends would extend all the way accross the drawing link they do in the linked model. I stopped them from monitoring. When I print there is always 2 sheets that I have to replot because of the gridline ends extending where I set them. It's always different sheets.

            We were required to do the same with grids at my former employer; it was really just an old graphics standard for the drawings. I battled for years, explaining that the amount of time spent managing grids was a huge time suck. A model setup would start with views set up specifically for maintaining the extents of grids and using those views to propagate their extents to all other views. The problem was that grids inevitably are either added (new) or deleted and re-added. Finally I was able to demonstrate how much time was being spent on just grid management with a couple large projects. Only then was I able to convince my manager to allow grids to pass through the view and set them to plot very lightly.

            Tldr: trimming grids is a waste of time!
