A marker is a transient icon that marks or represents the presence of a saved view, link or markup. It is displayed as an icon that stands out of the normal geometry in a model and is easy to recognize. The Mini toolbar for the marker is displayed when you hold the pointer over a marker. Markers are stored locally in the model.
Markers are displayed for the following:
- Saved views — section view, elevation view, plan view, and detail view.
- Links — links to files and file contents that are supported by Explorer.
Markers for Saved Views
The following markers are displayed for different saved view types:
If any of the saved view marker is active, it is displayed in a yellow background so that it can be distinctly identified from the other markers. For example, see the active section view marker below.
In a drawing or sheet model, the markers of saved views that intersect with the reference saved view are displayed.
If you double-click a marker for saved view, the saved view is applied. For this, the view attributes are inherited from the saved view, whereas the reference display state and the level display state are inherited from the first drawing or sheet model displayed in the Open Target drop-down list of its mini toolbar. The apply options are inherited from the Apply View tool of its mini toolbar.
Marker for Markups
When you hold the pointer over a marker for a markup, the Mini Toolbar for Links opens. When you select Open Link, the review model of the markup opens.
