Reusing layouts from other files

Save time by re-using layouts that you have already created. Within the same drawing, you may want to make a copy of a layout that contains most of the settings you want, and then make changes to the new copy. If you created layouts that you want to use again when you create new drawings, you can save the layouts as a drawing template.

To make a copy of a layout
  1. Type layout and then press Enter.
  2. In the prompt box, choose Copy.
  3. Type the name of the layout you want to copy, and then press Enter.
  4. Type a name for the new layout, and then press Enter.
To save a layout as a drawing template

  2. In the prompt box, choose Save.
  3. Type the name of the layout that you want to save, and then press Enter.
  4. Specify the file name and location for the template, and then click Save.
  5. After you save a layout as a template, you can use the template when you create new drawings. You can also import the template's layouts into another drawing.
