80 Using the Project Navigator to Plot Sheets-Tools of the Sheets Tab

81 Specifying the Template and Page Setup Override

82 Steps to Plotting-1 1.Copy an Aec Sheet template from Document and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Autodesk\ACA 2010\enu\Template {Vista - ProgramData\Autodesk\ACA 2010\enu\Template} folder to the project folder. 2. Open the Project Navigator and select the Sheets tab. Select the Sheet Set View toggle, shown at left, to display the Sheet Set View. 3. Select the project sheet set icon as shown at p1, right-click, and choose Properties to open the Sheet Set Properties dialog box.

83 4. To specify a template file for storage of page setup overrides, click in the right margin of the Page setup override file field to display the Browse button p1, shown at left.

Select the Browse button shown at p3 to open the Select Drawing dialog box and select an Aec Sheet template with layouts. The layouts included in the template will be listed in the Select Layout as Sheet Template dialog box. Select a layout from the list and click OK to dismiss the Select Layout as Sheet Template dialog box. Steps for Plotting-2

84 Steps for Plotting-3 6. Click OK to dismiss the Sheet Set Properties dialog box. If the layout chosen constitutes a change, the Confirm Changes dialog opens. Choose Yes to apply this change to all subsets of the sheet set. 7. To create a new sheet expand Architectural, select the Plans subset, right-click, and choose New > Sheet.
