I was wondering how other people were handling the lack of ability to give a priority level to a reference of a clipping from a 3d. I know that you can adjust the update sequence, but sometimes I want to draw things above and below a reference. e.g. when I am drawing tile plans it would be useful if I could draw the tiles beneath the doors and such, but put annotation above everything else. Or am I the only one who has this problem?
I had the same problem with colored plans, in which I wanted the different rooms colored or color the elevation views (obviously under the reference) and adding text... above. I just made a 2nd model in my file to add the colors. That one I referenced to my main drawing model so sequence would be:
Ofcourse this is a workaround, but I don't think there is another solution yet.

I think this is the workflow we will be using. But I agree that it is a workaround, and not the ideal solution.
I’m assuming that you reference the Saved View from the 3D Model in to a 2D file. Then also reference in the 2D file (containing the areas and annotations/room names) in to the same 2D file.
Now that everything is in a 2D file, …. element and Level ‘priority’ settings should work (-1000 through to zero, then up to +1000)
At least it used to from what I recall (it’s been a while since I had to do that)

If I get what you are saying, I understand that if you put the 2d workspace in another 2d workspace to gain the priorities and such. This corresponds with what Stefan said. However, it would be easier if we could just put it directly in the first 2d workspace, which as far as we see is not possible. There already tends to be a 'reference creep', where references and nested references keep getting unchecked. Any additional references we can prevent being added is some time gained.
But thanks for the suggestion.
