Sheet Set Issues

149 Views, 4 Replies

I'm attempting to create a sheet set from existing drawings, but when I point the "New Sheet Set Wizard" to the folder containing my 8 or so drawings (with 24 or so associated layouts), only 2 drawings appear with 6 associated layouts for import.  The other layouts don't even show up as being part of another sheet set.  How do I get the New Sheet Set Wizard to "see" the layouts?


Thanks!

The layouts are all simple alphanumeric names of maximum 7 characters.  I renamed the files themselves to eliminate hyphens and reduce file name length (example name: Level 1), but this didn't help.

 

Any next steps to try?

This happens to me sometimes, I completely close out of the sheetset and Autocad and then reopen.

That seems to help me.

Still didn't help.  I tried creating the sheet set and importing additional drawings after the sheet set existed, and this worked.  Problem solved, but still, it's an odd issue.
