View Full Version : importing layouts

Help please.....
Having only recently discovered the wonder of paperspace and layouts, with the aid of the great tuts on cadclips.com .
I am now faced with another issue . I work designing earthmoving attachments, eg buckets ,rippers, etc, and often i have people from other sections draw components and details which i then have to add to my workshop drawings. I have also taught them how to use layouts. My problem arises when i try to merge their drawing into my main drawing. the modelspace drawing works fine but how do i import the layout (if its at all possible ) so that it shows in the new drawing correctly.

Not real clear on your question-

How are you "merging" the drawings, with 'xref' or copy & paste?
With xref, yes you only get the modelspace info. if you want "paperspace" (layout) items you can copy & paste.

You can also drag and drop entire layouts from one drawing to another using the Design Center. Not sure if that's what you're after? :confused:
