I am trying to make a new template with predefined layout(s).
By "predefined" I mean the possibility to see already the drawing in layout without using "Page Setup Manager"
I defined 4 layouts: A4 High, A4 Low, A3 Hight & A3 Law.
I import my data into my model
I choose one of the layout, by clicking on it and my data are ready to be printed out.
I have of course looked on the internet, but can't really find, what I am looking for.
My question(s) are:
Is it possible to be done?
Do you know where I have to look?
Can you recommend some tutorials?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I can make a drawing, set everything up and save it as a template.
Afterwards I can use the template to read the same data as previously.
When I click to the layout button, it is working because I am using the same zoom, but if I import data from a different working place, it is not working.
I think it is because the viewport is not an extented view of my model.
Is it possible to tweak the viewport, so it is taking an extend view of the data eveytime?
I can't delete the thread, so I continue, even if it is almost working.
I just have to dobbel click the choosed layout and write ZE (zoom extents) in the command line!
It appears you have answered all of your own questions- is there anything else you need help on?
Thank you for your answer ericcollins6932!
It will be nice, if the viewport could make a "ZE" for me, but I don't think it is possible, so no I don't have further questions.
As I have your attention, I do have a besidde question:
I am fighting a little bit with my text.
Do you know some reading on how to make my own style types?
