Select a new layout for your drawing

You can select which layout to use in a drawing in drawing properties. The layout information is stored in the drawing property files. We recommend that you create as many property files as you need different layouts for the different drawing types.

To select a new layout and save the layout information in a drawing properties file:

  1. On the Drawings & reports tab, click Drawing properties and select the drawing type.
  2. Load drawing properties that are as close to the ones you need as possible.
  3. Click Layout.
  4. Select a new layout from the Layout list.
  5. Click Save to save the changed drawing properties and OK to close the drawing properties dialog box.

Now you can create a drawing using the drawing property file that contains the changed layout information.
