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,

    @brucebartlett @nick_coppins I have created tickets for each of you on the improvement to be able to copy and paste sheets of a drawing to another drawing.  There are things to think through when you move content from one drawing to another with regards to properties of the drawings that are defining the content that is being copied/pasted/moved.

    Furthermore we do have improvements in store for duplicating a drawing, duplicating a drawing and it's references, and also improvements surrounding replace reference in a drawing.

    Hi @PeteYodis, Any news?

    Please add me to the feature request to Merge Single into multiple sheets and also on the Copy and paste one.

    I looked briefly for them and could not find it.

    Hi @PeteYodis,
    I am confronted to this exact issue where I created a bunch of individual drawings but I now need to merge them into one drawing with multiple sheets. Is there any new tip or way to achieve that without re-making all the drawings? If not, please add me to the feature request as well !
    Thanks a lot.

    I've just run into this same issue as well -- would love to see this capability.

    +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 haven´t needed it yet but it would be great if it is possible! +1

    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.
