    Default Creating sheet sets from existing drawings

    being new to sheet sets even thou its been arouind for several years now, i've run into a problem. When creating a sheet set from existing drawings i have noticed that not all drawings are being read from the drawing directories of each job. example: i go to a job after starting the sheet set manager, i know there are 15 sheets in the job, the manager only picks up 8 sheets, i have to go back and manually insert 7 more sheets into the set. Is there a setting i am not doing, i'm following the screen prompts.

    What release of AutoCAD are you using?

    I've only had that happen when my drawings didn't have formatted layouts in them (many of our campus's drawings were originally done in R10 and R12), but, it does not sound as if that is the case for you.

    Hmm, if you deleted the sheet set, and tried recreating it again automatically, are the same drawings left out?

    i did notice that when i go to add the sheets manually, i get message basicly saying that some sheets may have been used in a previously in another set. seeing how i am the only working on these jobs i do not see how this is possible.
