v9 Layout: relink and updating.

Recommended Posts

I am not sure, but should Layout update itself after relink the 3D model?

This is the situation: I am modelling 2 houses, but I need 2 different layouts, although these are more or less the same. The content is different. It would be nice if I could work on Layout 1 with the link to 3D model 1. After I made my setup, copy Layout 1 (layout 1 copy). Rename Layout 1 copy into Layout 2, open Layout 2 and relink model 2. All frames should update with the content from 3D model 2.

Now, it is not working like this. But should it work like this?

I am also having the same issue, however there is a workaround.

If I relink each frame to the new file it updates the frame.  Unfortunately I have to update each frame one at a time.  Select the frame, right click to show Parameters, click on the file folder symbol with the red arrow, select your file.  It should update the frame.  Repeat for each frame.

I also still have issues in that the file does not always update when I change my .fmz file.  I have to close the file and/or Layout to get it to update.

Actually Layout is indeed linking the files properly by simply going to File: Project Info: Linked Files and selecting my new .fmz file.  

However, I have to save, close Layout and reopen the program.  Then it appears that all frames are linked correctly the new file.  

So there is still an issue, but I don't have to relink each frame as stated in my previous post.
