Good Morning,

 

I have linework on a separate layer, and that layer is set to "no print".  The plan set page still displays the linework for that layer, but when I print the page the linework is gone (as it should be).  Is there a way to have the plan set page display as it will print?

 

Thanks,

Dave

I believe custom visibilities in plan sets are only able to toggle building options, not layers. So create a building option for your no-print items and you should be able to turn them off.

No print layers have always still shown on the plan sets. I have a no print layer called "HIDDEN" on all my plans. Simple option, turn that layer OFF and it doesn't show on the planset.

Plan sets should show what is going to print.  I shouldn't have to print a copy to see if all my "hidden" stuff if truly hidden.

I use no print lines to help me line stuff up on plan set pages so I’m glad I can see them and they don’t print. But I do change the layer color so I can easily see what won’t print.

I agree with Dennis. It would be nice to be able to see exactly how the planset would print, without having to deliberately turn layers on and off.

There is even a check box when you set up a plan set "view as printed".
