Managing layouts in a drawing

You can rename layouts, delete layouts, and view a list of all layouts available in a drawing. You can also change the order in which the Layout tabs appear; the Model tab is always stationary.

If you want to rename or delete a layout when the Layout tabs are hidden, you can type layout to make your changes.

  1. Right-click the Layout tab to rename.
  2. Type a new name for the layout.
