Sheet Format/Size

Drawing sheets are the "paper" sheets where you place drawing views, dimensions, and annotations.

If your drawing template does not include a sheet format, then you select one when you:
  • Open a new drawing.
  • Add a new sheet and Tool > System Options > Drawings > Show sheet format dialog when adding new sheet is selected.
The standard sheet formats include links to system properties and custom properties.

In an open drawing, you can change to a different sheet format. In the FeatureManager design tree, right-click Sheet Format and click Properties.

To select a sheet format:

  1. Click New (Standard toolbar).
  2. Select Drawing , then click OK.
