Layout Sheets

Recommended Posts

When starting a new plan and layout how do you set the layout sheet to the correct size for printing? I want to set layout sheet to 18 x 24. When I open a new layout sheet it is 8.5 x 11.

Create that 18"x24" sheet and use SAVE AS as save it as a template in whichever folder you keep your templates.

 

I think there are also some premade templates of that size in one of the directories included with Chief.

The steps are:

1. Go to "File - Print - Set up Drawing Sheet.

2. Format the virtual layout sheet "printable area" (Blue outline on most printers - a visual when the layout is opened) to the intended paper size

3. Set Drawing Sheet to either portrait or landscape

4.Set up your title block on page zero (things on page zero appear on all pages thereafter)

5.This is thoroughly covered in your Reference Manual and Users Guide (found under Help Menu)
