What do you recommend to save a standard sheet full of drafting views.  Must the drafting views all be saved separately, recreated on the new sheet, then compose onto a new sheet in the new project?

We had several library projects.  

  • One that had all of our wall definitions defined and placed as legends with notes on multiple sheets grouped by category ... metal stud/wood stud/ masonry ...etc.
  • One that had nothing but door types, another windows shown on sheets in plan/elevation/3d and schedule
  • One that was all annotative including hatch patters shown on a sheet
  • We had 2D details in another grouped by category on sheets.

How we used.... You need a/some door(s), open the door project and copy paste into your project.   You need a special hatch pattern.  Quickly identify it visually, copy the filled region that used it and paste into your project.  And you need say a 2D door jamb detail... open the detail project and identify the details then use the load function to load multiple detail views into your project.

 

The key here is not names .... its VISUAL!

 

Obviously, you want to compose these views in your project.... forget the CAD though process of 'standard sheets' !

Let me answer my own question.   In the source project, Make sure the number and name of the drawing are not the same as something in the target project (or rename).   Right clik on the sheet hame and save.    In the target, insert/insert from file.  The whole sheet drafting views comes in.  change the title block to match the destination project.  Done.
