The Lyons' Share Video Tip - Batch Print
Do you have multiple sheets in one file? Would you like to print them all at once? With DraftSight this is very simple. Check out this video to learn how to print any or all drawings that are in a specific file.
See all DraftSight Tips and Tricks Videos.
Using Existing Drawing Settings
You can bring in drawing settings from any existing file into you current file, such as Dimension Styles, Line Style, Blocks and even Layers. When you open a new file, simply insert the file that contains the settings into the new one as a block. Delete the geometry that shows in your graphics window, and what you have left is all of the other settings from the inserted file. This will allow you to simply bring these settings into your new file without having to recreate them.
Freeze All Layers
In DraftSight you cannot freeze the current layer, but you can freeze all of the remaining layers at once. Make sure the active layer is the one you want to remain. Simply select the first layer, and then scroll down until you see the last layer. Hold the Shift key down and select the last one. Then click the freeze icon on any of the layers in the layer manager. You will get a warning that says that you cannot freeze the current layer. Click Ok, and all of the layers will be frozen except the current layer.
