Subject: Working with layouts

Each drawing that you create contains the area where you do most of your work on the Model tab and can also contain numerous layouts on Layout tabs that simulate the paper on which you will print a copy of the drawing.

Using the Explorer, you can manage the layouts in a drawing, assign a page setup, and you can also easily copy layouts to be reused in other drawings.

Making a layout active in the Explorer is the equivalent of clicking its corresponding tab in the drawing window.
