Consolidate Layout Tabs

Hi everyone!

 

I would like to be able to consolidate my layout tabs. I have a drawing of a factory that is of some size and the plant is continually growing. I like having all of my information in one place as the drawings (one .dwg file) change. Does anyone know how to do this? Or does anyone know for fact that AutoCAD is not capable of doing so? I'm not willing to break up into separate dwg files either.

Thanks...but that's not what I'm looking to do. Instead of actually "merging" the layouts into one single layout, I want to basically create a folder and drop the older layouts in that folder...bascially hide them.

It can only export a layout as a drawing but I  have not seen export layout as a tab.

There isn't an option to hide layouts within a drawing.  Probably a good thing too, as evidenced by the "Hide XREF scales" - out of sight is out of mind.
