Multiple Section Views, draft option

When creating multiple sections using the draft option what settings control how the sections are placed? For example, 5 across, 4 down. Thanks.


edit - I have several alignments. One that has 8 section views is created with 4 across and 3 down, another with 18 sections is created with 5 across and 4 down and a third with 34 is created with 6 across and down. I'd like to be able to control this if possible.

I have not fond a way to control this.

There are setting for by row or by column and how far appart to place them.


I think because it is draft, there is some sort of reasoning for what it does but not a setting per se.

After all we are not using the production setup with a sheet template so in a way we are saying oh I don't care just show them to me.


But I agree it would be nice if it was controllable. sometimes I get a long string and other times I get an area more rectangular filled with sections and I cannot for the life of me see how it decides which.
