    The TechDraw ShareView tool makes a View and all its dependents (Balloons, Dimensions, etc) visible on a second Page.


    1. Optionally select a View, a from Page and a to Page. The pages must be selected in that order.
    2. There are several ways to invoke the tool:
      • Press the TechDraw ShareView.svg Share View button.
      • Select the TechDraw → TechDraw Views → TechDraw ShareView.svg Share View option from the menu.
    3. A dialog will open to allow you to select a View, from Page and to Page.
    4. Press the OK button.


    There is only one View object after the share operation. Any changes made to the View will be reflected in both Pages. If the View is deleted from one Page it will also be deleted from the other.
