Multiple Drawing Sheets

This information is specific to one or more CAD systems. See the SolidWorks eDrawings functionality matrix for availability information.

When you publish a multi-sheet drawing document as an eDrawings file, you can select which sheets to publish in the eDrawings file. If you publish multiple sheets, the file size and the time required to save the eDrawings file may increase.

You must have SolidWorks eDrawings Professional installed to be able to choose the sheets to save. If you have the free eDrawings Viewer, all the sheets are published.

To save multiple sheets:

  1. Click File, Publish to eDrawings ( in the Save flyout toolbar).

    For the SolidWorks application, you can also save multiple sheets using File, Save As.

  2. In the dialog box, select one:

  • Current sheet.

  • All sheets.

  • Selected sheets. Select sheets from the list.

  1. Click OK.

    The SolidWorks eDrawings Viewer opens and lists the selected sheets on the Sheets tab .

  2. To display a different sheet in the graphics area, double-click the sheet on the Sheets tab , or select the tab with the sheet name below the graphics area.
