    Default Work on two sheets at once?

    Im not sure if it is possible, but wanted to know if anyone knew if you could split your screen in Paperspace so you would be able to work on 2 different sheets at once?? Kind of like splitting your screen in Modelspace to work on 2 different parts of the drawing.

    Thanks.

    When you say two different sheets, are they both in the same file? If not, you can use Window>Tile, but not if they are layouts in the same file.

    To answer your question, they are in the same file.

    perhaps i should explain further.

    I have dual screens, in which i either use split screen in Model space and work on different parts of the drawing at once, or I simply have 2 different drawings up at once, one on each screen.

    So when in paperspace, and I have multiple sheets for the one drawing, I wondered if it were possible to have for example, sheet 2 on the first screen, and sheet 5 on the second screen, although still in the same drawing.

    perhaps a screenshot of both screen would help my question be better illustrated?

    What I said earler still kinda applies. You can't look at 2 layouts in the same dwg at the same time.

    One workaround I can think of is to make another vp off to the side that looks at the same part of ms that the other layout sees. You won't be able to make a vp to the other layout's ps though.

    Another workaround, split your layouts into separate files; copy the files and delete the unneeded layouts from each file and xref to a single ms file.

    A third workaround is to open the file as read-only in another instance of acad. Then you can at least copy from one layout to another.

    This sounds like a wish list item. Able to open two layouts at once and/or a layout and the model tab at the same time. Got my vote who is gonna write it up and submit it?

    This wish was voted on last February and ranked 32nd. It also ranked 53rd in October.

    Otherwise, you can submit a new thread in the LDT Wish List forum. Or you can wait until after June to resubmit it to the AutoCAD Wish List.
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.
