To Prepare for Creating a Sheet Set
- Consolidate drawing files. Move the drawing files to be used in the sheet set into a small number of folders.
This will simplify sheet set administration.
- Eliminate multiple layout tabs. Each drawing you plan to use in the sheet set should have only one layout to be used
as a sheet in the sheet set. This is important for access to sheets by multiple users.
Only one sheet in each drawing can be open at a time.
- Create a sheet creation template. Create or identify a drawing template (DWT) file to be used by the sheet set for
creating new sheets. This drawing template file is called the sheet creation template. You specify this template file in the Sheet Set Properties dialog box or the Subset
Properties dialog box.
- Create a page setup overrides file. Create or identify a DWT file to store page setups for plotting and publishing. This
file, called the page setup overrides file, can be used to apply a single page setup to all sheets in a sheet set, overriding
the individual page setups stored in each drawing.
