QuickViews allows users to very quickly add drawing views for all sub-components of an assembly without browsing for the correct file on the hard drive.

General Usage Instructions

1. Create or open a drawing that contains at least one view of your assembly.

2. Locate the QuickViews button somewhere at the end of your Place Views ribbon.

3. Click the QuickViews button, opens up a window consisting of a tree list showing a nested view of all unique components in the assembly. The numbers and dashes in the 2nd column indicate whether the drawing contains a view for the component, and if so, on which sheet it is located. The 3rd column is the description field for the component.

4. To add a base view for a component, select it in the list and press the Add View button, or double click it. This opens up the standard Autodesk® Inventor® Drawing View dialog allowing you to modify the view parameters before placing the views. Add Sheet Number on Parts List:

1. First, edit the Parts List by right click on it on the drawing or enter Parts List Style via Styles Editor.
