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.
Solved! Go to Solution.
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:
The properties dialog for the same filter but in the sheet file:
All the filters are like this.
Anyone have any ideas?
