Inventor - Swapping Title Block & Format

I have a completed drawing that needs to be with a different title block and maybe page size.  Is there a way to swap this out without having to recreate the drawing on the desired format?

If the desired titleblock is already in the drawing it's a piece of cake.  If not,... a slightly smaller piece of cake.

 

If it is in there, look at each sheet in the model tree and find the titleblock listed.

Right click on the titleblock and select delete.  Now go above to Drawing resources, find the new titleblock, right click and select insert.

 

If it is not already there, open a drawing that has the titleblock you want.  Find it in the drawing resources as shown above, right click and copy to clipboard.  Now go back to the drawing you want in ti live in, right click on titleblocks in the Drawing Resources and paste.  It is now available for insertion.

Hi DanMcManus2492, 

 

And if you end up needing to change the page size, simply right click on the Sheet node in the browser (Sheet:1for example) and choose Edit Sheet.

 

I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
Curtis
