    Default Prevent AutoCAD from creating more than one layout tab?

    if i remember correctly: it was autocad 2000 who started working with multiple layout tabs.
    But is there a setting or variable that goes back to a single layout tab???

    Just i would like to set this to a template to avoid drafters to use multiple layouts. It is compagny pollecy one drawing, one sheet. How do you fix this to maintain your cad standards?

    You could disable the command to create a new layout on every ones computer... One thing to remember (I dont know if this effects you) there can be a maximum of only 64 viewports per layout. (at least from what I can remember)

    You could set up the "company template" .dwt with just one layout and have it set up so everyone opens that automatically.

    As far as keeping them from adding a new one, I don't know .
