Place a Linked Section Marker

Note: This process is identical for Elevations, Details and Worksheets.
For a new linked marker, or to redefine an already placed selected marker, you have these choices:
the selected viewpoint (i.e., the viewpoint you select from the directory list after choosing “Browse”)
the selected drawing (i.e., the drawing you select from the directory list after choosing “Browse”)
the first placed drawing of the selected viewpoint (i.e., the first drawing created from the viewpoint you select from the directory list after choosing “Browse.”). “First” means the topmost eligible drawing in the Navigator Layout Book.
the first placed drawing of the selected view (i.e., the first drawing created from the view you select from the directory list after choosing “Browse.”). “First” means the topmost eligible drawing in the Navigator Layout Book.
Thus, a linked marker can refer to any viewpoint, view or drawing in the project.
Note: The option to refer to a view is available in case the desired Drawing is located in a different project’s Layout Book (and is therefore not listed in the “Define Marker Reference” dialog box). Since you cannot refer to the actual drawing, you can refer to the View (in the current project) from which the Drawing was created (in the other project). The marker will display the drawing data of the first drawing created out of this view as autotext (e.g. #Drawing Name, #DrgID). Once the Layout Book that contains the reference drawing is opened alongside the project containing the marker, the marker will fill in the correct drawing data.
