Deleting Views and Layouts

You can delete views from layouts or delete layout sheets.

You cannot delete a drawing sheet or views on a drawing sheet. If you try to delete an individual view on a drawing sheet, you create a new layout of the entire sheet minus the deleted view.

To delete views from layouts:

  • Select the view in the graphics area and press Delete.

  • Right-click the view under the layout on the Sheets tab in the SolidWorks eDrawings Manager and select Delete.

You can delete a layout on the Sheets tab even if it is not the active layout in the graphics area.

To delete layout sheets:

  • Select the layout name on the Sheets tab and press Delete.

  • Right-click the layout name on the Sheets tab and select Delete.
