ACAD 2013 Project manager -- need basic help

Hi all,


I am trying to use the new Project Manager feature in Autocad 2013 but am not getting very far, and I can't find any helpful support documentation with basic instructions on how to actually set up the project set.  I haven't used the sheet set manager in Autocad before.


I want to compile the layouts from 10 different drawings into one project.


I create a new project, but when I go to "Add existing drawing" nothing happens.


I've tried right clicking on the project name and clicking "Add layout from drawing" and nothing happens.


What am I missing?

Hi Sal,
In order to be able to add Layout from existing drawing you have to setup Layout in this drawing, or at least "initialize" Layout by switching to it in the drawing file, that you want to add to project.
