Import & export viewports and/or sheet layers

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to import SL or VP from one file to another?

I tried to ise import option in organisation manu, but it seems to import only SL properties not it's content.

Well, may be there's another way than moving SL (Sheet Layer) for my task. I have many files with several SL in each. In each SL there are several VPs (ViewPort) mostly. All those SL in many files are to be considered as 1 set of drawings. Therefore, for convenience of plotting and sheet name & drawing list management I want to have all necessary SLs in 1 file.

I've found that if I do workgroup referencing in this stage I have to re-make from 0 all SLs and VPs in the file I'm referencing those drawings in. Am I wrong with this?

And, as I mentioned before, I tried also importing SLs as described in article "Importing Drawing Structure from Standards or Other Files" in VW Help but for some reason it didn't work. Has anybody idea on how to do this better?
