CATIA V5 Tip: Drafting Display View Frame

The view frame is the dashed box that appears around a drawing view. This frame allows the user to quickly pick a view to drag it to another location on the drawing sheet. However, these frames can start to overlap one another in crowded areas of the drawing.

There are two methods to have CATIA not display these view frames on your drawing. The first is to turn off the frame in individual drawing views. This is done via the view’s properties.

This will turn off the frame for only that individual view.

Next, let’s say you want to see what the drawing will look like with all views removed. You could do it manually as discussed above, but there is a button that will act as a global display off/on and it’s located in the visualization toolbar of the drafting workbench.
