print multiple sheets

Question

I have a design with multiple sheets. Is there anyway I can print all these sheets with one command? Currently, I have to cycle thru all the sheets and print each sheet one by one. I would love to do it in a batch.

Yep,

Go to File> Print Sheets.

Select the sheets you want to print or you can slelect all and execute the prints.

Make sure you are in Vectorworks 9, and that it is in your workspace. If you had a custom workspace it may not have been added to it.

Well it looks like this is only an Architect feature. It is not included in the basic VW Foundation.

This was a new one to me. Sorry for any confusion this may have caused.

Peerman,

Once you install a plug-in, you need to add it to your Workspace with the Workspace editor. It doesn't just show up by itself.

First, you may want to check out Appendix B in the VectorWorks 9 manual. It covers the Worksheet Editor in detail.

Here is a breif walkthrough.

Go to File -> Workspaces -> Workspace Editor.Select "Edit the current workspace".Locate the plug-in on hte left hand columnOpen the menu in the right hand side you would like to add the command to.Drag the command from teh left side to a location in a menu on the right.Click ok

Peerman,

The only objects that get printed are objects that are within the Print Area limits.

When using the Print Sheets command, it uses the same Print Area bounding box. You cannot set the bounding box for one sheet and then set it in another place for another sheet when using the Print Sheets command.

Either move the stuff in your drawing so it fits in the Print Area correctly for each sheet without moving the grey bounding box, OR don't use Print Sheets command from the File menu.

I did add it to my workspace and the command shows up just fine, but when I want to print the sheets I chose the only prints I get are what's inside de Print Area. When I move the print area to match my sheet it doesnt't work as well.
