C3D created P&P sheets that do not include layer filters.

We have one template that we use for starting all our drawings.  This contains all of our layers, layer filters and most commonly used blocks.

 

Then we have a template file called "Titleblocks" -- this contains one layout for each different size border as well as vport definitions for Plan, Profile or P&P.

 

When I used the C3D P&P tool to create my sheets, it of course used the Titleblocks template which means that the filters are lost.  Is there a relatively simple way to add those filters to my sheets?  Each sheet is a layout in a separate dwg file.

 

TIA!

Hi Don,

 

I remember you asking a related question in the AutoCad forum a while back.

If I'm understanding that you wish to import some layer filters into your plan sheets you can do so using the built in layer filter export & import commands Here.

 

We have them in our dwt's used for Plan Production sheet creation and they come in with each sheet automatically.

WOW!  Great memory! 

 

I had forgotten all about even asking.  Shortly after asking the question, the project got put on hold and I was reassigned to other tasks.  So I haven't been able to touch it.  I just recently got back on it again.

 

I appreciate your time!

I've used the commands to save the filters out and then import them into one of my sheets.

 

All the filters are there -- but they're all BLANK (undefined).

 

Here's the properties dialog box for one of the filters in the source file:

LayerFiltersSource.png

 

 

The properties dialog for the same filter but in the sheet file:

LayerFilters.png

 

All the filters are like this.
