Having in the same Drawing, the choice for horizontal and/or vertical sheets formats

francois_bouletfrancois_boulet Member Posts: 44 EDU


I would like to have the possibility to create a Drawing template where, in the same format (Ex: A), while adding a new sheet you could choose from horizontal or vertical.
In other words; The possibility of having, in the same Drawing, horizontal and vertical sheets formats.

    You can do this already if using the standard templates provided by Onshape. You just need to access the sheet properties by right clicking on the sheet.
    The template shown would be A (landscape), and under the pull-down there is an A (portrait). You would have to choose custom to get other sizes to be portrait.

    Also, it doesn't seem possible to do this with user/company specific custom templates. Or I have mine set up in such a way it isn't possible. I'm going to upvote only because it would be nice to be able to choose from my custom templates in the size pull-down.

    @francois_boulet Can you show me what your two different sheets would look like?  I want to see exactly what you mean by horizontal or vertical.

    I think he means sheet1 is Portrait, sheet2 is landscape, etc..

    Exactly.
    Sometimes we need to produce a set of plans in wich some sheets are Portrait and some are Landscape

    @francois_boulet as @Cris_Bowers mentioned you can change the sheet sizes later to get Portrait or Landscape behavior.  What was not clear to me was if you had sheet formats where the titleblock is tipped on it's side and the text is written vertically rather than horizontally.  We don't support that case, just yet - but we will when you can swap sheet formats on a sheet...

    Are you working on swaping sheet formats on a sheet for user specific custom templates as well ?

    @francois_boulet It's been highly requested and it's an improvement we intend to make.  No comments on when it will be available, as is our norm.
