Cleaning Up Old Drawings
Read 1350 times

After a year or so of work, I have finally 'evolved' a drawing paper space "standardized" to what I want my final document to look like, printer, paper, margins, etc.

I have many old drawings where the paper space differs. Is there a way to create a new paper space in my old drawings with the new defaults.

One way I have thought about using, and it works, is to set up a new template with the correct settings, start a new file with that template, copy over model space and the drawing from the original paper space and then save it with a new name.

I was looking for an easier way. Any suggestions?

Workspace / PaperSpace / Insert from Template might work in this case.

What I did was to make a title block and border that fits paper space and then drew it in model space.  Whenever I want to make a blueprint drawing I Insert/File and choose the file with my borders and title block.  I also added other information needed while making the dimensions for a part.  It drops in at about PosX 5.500 and PosY 4.250 in a new file.  Then when I go to paper space it is already there.  If you can make it the way I do then you can insert it into your old drawings then add the viewports.
