That's like asking how to use a computer. A bit too vague of a question. You first need to create your model if you want automatic drawings to create a "plan view". If you are asking about a general view, they have what is called a schematic, I beleive. You can create a top view of any part, group or assembly, however. Or you can draw out a plan in model space with lines and print that like the old days.
We could offer more help if I knew what stage you were at and where you wanted to end up.
My aplogies if I was not making myself clear. I have generated a model, a steel pipe support bridge. I am able to generate shop drawings. I want to create an overall Plan View, with the visible beams and columns labeled. As of now, I can create the plan view using mviews, but I have to place the labels and dimensions in paper space. I wish to use the templates to create a Plan View general arrangement layout.
