About multiple-page drawings

For some drawing projects, you might want to create a single drawing file that contains many drawing pages. For example, a drawing file could represent a construction project and have the overall floor plan on one drawing page, interior elevations on another page, and details for walls and doors on a third page. New drawing files that you open have only one drawing page, but you can add as many new pages as you want.

Each page in a multiple-page drawing can have its own page and print settings. For example, each page can have a different drawing scale and page orientation.

When you create a new drawing page, by default it inherits the size, orientation, scale, measurement unit, shadow offset, ruler, and grid settings of the page currently displayed in the drawing window. You can then change the settings for the new page.

Use multiple pages in a drawing file to:

 

Keep related drawings in the same file

Keep all revisions of a single drawing in one file on successive pages

Create a slide show
