Some of the key points to take away from this Tech Tip are in generative drafting, you can only generate a front view when you have a 3D Part open. All projected views are established from the front view, either directly or indirectly. You can independently add other views, such as isometric, for drawing clarity. Also, make sure you are in the Drafting application and have at least one 3D Part open.
