If you have attended any of my AutoCAD classes or presentations, you probably know I’m a big fan of sheet set functionality. Sheet sets were introduced in AutoCAD 2005 and subtly enhanced in subsequent releases.
In AutoCAD 2008 you can easily add a layout from the current drawing to the active sheet set. Simply right click over the layout tab and select Import Layout as Sheet from the right click menu. Or, just drag and drop the layout tab onto the sheet list.
Using either of these methods will display the Import Layouts as Sheets dialog box listing all the layouts in the drawing with the specified layout already selected. You can select additional layouts to import. If you’ve created new layouts, you’ll have to save the drawing before they are displayed in the Import Layouts as Sheets dialog box.
