    Default Sheet Styles & Style Manager

    I'm working on Sheet Styles for my company. I'm trying to make a sheet style that has three plan views. (Without any profile or cross section views) I want them to go . . . say top to bottom such that AutoCAD Land Desktop (2005) creates my plan view for the first segment and the following segment would fall underneath the first ( and by virtue of that the third would fall under the second). However when I go through the process AutoCAD only uses the top plan view. The consultant that we worked with has three plan views in their drawing. What do I do in order to get AutoCAD to use the other two plan views?

    Thanks

    Which release was your consultant using? I think the Sheet Manager has been updated in the 06 release. I know in prior releases it was a bit buggy to say the least. You couldn't get more than one plan section or profile veiw to come in no matter what you did. The only way I found to get around it was to run sheet manager and then add the additional vports and veiws as needed.

    The consultant used Microstation and converted to DXF prior to sending the drawing to us. We then put it into our AutoCAD (Land Desktop 2005). Ergo, it sounds like we are kind of stuck for now. (Maybe I'll just have to pester IT a little bit more to install 2006)

    Sounds like they were using either Inroads or Geopak. Both will allow you to build multi veiw plan sheets.
