    I have noticed a few support queries regarding the default settings for Drawing Views in Inventor 2015. Quite a few people have blogged and posted already about this, but I thought I would add the information on the Cadline Community also.

    The issue specifically is the ‘Thread Feature’ Display Options in Inventor.

    The option is not on by default when placing drawings views. Hence the hassle of additional view editing in order to turn this on.

    DISCLAIMER

    This article contains information about editing the registry. Before you edit the registry, make sure you understand how to create a backup and restore it if a problem occurs (Microsoft Link), as this can render your system inoperable. You edit the registry at your own risk.

    This can be quite easily remedied with a simple Registry Edit.

    NOTE: If you’re not 100% comfortable with this then please get your IT support to do it. Alwaystake a backup of your registry keys before editing.

     

    The default of "off" can be changed by using the following setting

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\Inventor\RegistryVersion19.0\Applets\DrawingLayout\Preferences\DrawingFormat]

    "BaseViewDefPart"= DWORD - 1111501

    Hope this helps.
