Making Sheet Layers Work v2017

Recommended Posts

I have a file on spotlight in which, being used to the workings of AutoCAD, I simply set up a 24x36 rectangle and drafted in 1/4" scale in that, since this was my first time using this program. Now that I want to export, I can't seem to get it within the sheet layer. Is there a quick and easy way to get the sheet layer to contain what I drew, or do I have to alter a lot? Also, is there an easy way to change my title block, drawn just in a design layer instead of sheet layer, to the regular format of a title block? If it helps, I have attached the file in question, in vectorworks 2017 format.

Hi Alex,

You're on the right track. Be sure the page size for the Sheet Layer is 24x36 and One Printer Page - this is configured by Sheet Layer>Edit>Page Setup>Printer Setup from from the Organization or Navigation Palette. Be sure your Sheet Layer Viewport is set to 1:48 Remove the Title Block object from the Design Layer and place it on the Sheet.
