Moving a drawing sheet

nick_coppinsnick_coppins Member Posts: 9 ✭✭
I have a bunch of part drawings created as individual drawings. 

Is there any way to move these into a multi-sheet drawing?

    Hi Nick,

    We do not yet have this capability in drawings and I do not see an improvement request for it. If you would like to see it please create an improvement request to the right ->

    Thank you,

    +1 for merging single sheet drawings into a larger multi-sheet drawing. Could be a timesaver for our work.

    I have been needing this improvement for quite some time, would be very nice and save time, which is saving money lol. Very valuable fix to drawings in my opinion. Even with the many improvements that could be made in onshape drawings, this one ranks pretty high for me.

    So I would be another add to the improvement request count..
    @pete_yodis Have they considered this improvement request or begun a fix? Much appreciated!

    We have moving or copying sheets from one drawing to another as a logged improvement.  It requires some reference handling questions the user would need to address... do you want the references copied, moved, or referenced.  It's on our list to do.

    I ran into this problem as well. I think moving the references would be the most reasonable choice. Just simply something simple like cut and pasting the single sheet drawings into a multisheet drawing. That would be enough for me for right now. If possible though having the option to generate a drawing into the multisheet drawing via the "create drawing of" option would also be great.

    I just ran into this issue in a big way.  This has apparently been around for over half a decade as a request, and has been repeatedly requested here by many users.  Is there any update on the possibility of doing this?

    I have found that I can copy and paste the contents of a sheet into a new sheet in another drawing, and usually there are only a few things that need to be tweaked.  So, it doesn't seem like there is any huge technical issue preventing this from being able to be done, or at least it is not obvious from the front end.  It would be nice to at least have some information shared about the status of this as a possibility for the future.

    Same here, run into the issue today. Would be so nice to copy and paste a sheet from one drawing to another drawing. (Or a new drawing 'something' like an assembly for drawings where you combine separate drawings...?! Not sure if this is a good idea or not, maybe it overcomplicate things for the user...)
