To Create a Sheet Composition

The following general procedure assumes:

  1. Create a sheet composition model (for example, Plan Sheet 1) from the appropriate sheet seed model. Select the desired Annotation Scale in the Create Model dialog.
  2. Do one of the following:

    Place a saved view on to the sheet from the Explorer dialog.


    Place a saved view on to the sheet from the Saved Views dialog ( Drawing > View > Saved Views dialog launcher ).


    Place a saved view on to the sheet from its corresponding callout — for example, the section callout in the case of a section view.

    The Reference Attachment Properties dialog opens.

  3. (Optional) Set the Detail Scale. For example, if the sheet's Annotation Scale is 1/8"=1' and you are placing a detail view of scale 1/4"=1', select that Detail Scale. The Scale (Master:Ref) will automatically update to 2:1.
  4. (Optional) To synchronize the display of the reference on the sheet with the saved view, set Synchronize View to All Settings.
  5. (Optional) To ensure that annotations in the reference will be sized uniformly — that is, by applying the active sheet's annotation scale, set Use Active Annotation Scale in the Toggles section. This option does not actually modify the annotations; it simply affects their display.
  6. (Optional) To create a drawing boundary, which describes the view on the sheet, select New in the Drawing Boundaries drop-down list and type a name for the drawing boundary.
    Note: When a drawing boundary is selected, the drawing boundary is indicated by a dashed rectangle with corner tabs around the reference attachment. This drawing boundary can be resized.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Repeat steps 2–7 for each additional saved view you want to place on the sheet.
