Orientation: Flat Pattern view option not selected

Hello All,

When adding a Flat Pattern view from using ‘CreateFlatPatternViewFromModelView3’

It add the Flat-Pattern view without fail, the only downside is that Fixed face is ignored, normally when you add a flat pattern from the taskpane, the Option under Orientation, Flat Pattern is checked by default so that right side is always up. I cannot seem to find how to this from the API.


The work around I have used in the past is to regenerate palette views using IDrawingDoc::GenerateViewPaletteViews and then IDrawingDoc::DropDrawingViewFromPalette2 and specify “Flat Pattern” for PaletteViewName parameter.

This is a current limitation, I think reported under some SPR.
