Can I copy guidelines on V11?

Post by relayerbob »

Hi,
I have a two-sided model I am working on (more precisely, a model on one side, but features on the back of it), and I need to keep things aligned front to back in the model. I set up guide lines on the model side, that everything references from, but when I flip to the other side, I need to have those same references. I can see gray-out versions of the other sides guide lines, but they stay put, so that they are inverted from what I need. I could, in theory, reproduce the guide lines in the proper orientation, but that will not only get old quick with the number of of drawings I am doing, it is also more prone to error. So, that's my question: is there a way to get guidelines transferred to the back side of a two sided drawing?

Thanks!
Bob

You can't copy guidelines, but you can draw a line then right click it to copy to other side. You can then right click it again and change it to another layer. From there you can change the color and on the box to the right side you can lock it.
