Border Considerations

When working on a project, the standard borders typically are drawn in a separate design file and then either referenced, or placed as a cell, when creating a drawing.

An advantage with the reference option is that only one file or model needs to be updated if there is a change to the standard title block or border. On the other hand, if the border is placed as a cell then the border is included with the drawing and doesn't require the reference file.

Similarly, when putting together a drawing, either of two distinct methods may be used — placing a full scale border and scaling the design, or scaling the border to fit the full scale design.
