Centering 2 story building on drawing sheet

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm sure there is going to be an easy answer for this, but I can't seem to find the answer in any of the self help resources.

 

Is there a way for me to center my 2 story building on the drawing sheet?    

 

I've read in some answers that you don't want to move an entire building?   But how about moving the sheet underneath?

 

(I tried moving the building with a select all, but it only moved the 1st floor and basement and left the 2nd floor where it was.  Luckily, I could undo that bad move)

 

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure why anyone uses the drawing sheet, as arranging things usually happens in Layout.

 

Use Edit>Edit Area>Edit Area (All Floors) to select and move a complete structure. You can center using the Center tool -- it will pick up the centers of the drawing sheet.

If you are talking about working in plan view as opposed to working in a layout....

move the drawing sheet to where you want it positioned?

I have done this.

Thanks gentlemen.   I will definitely use the Edit All Floors going forward.

 

I also just figured out that a simple answer was under my nose:  File>Print>Center Sheet

It's best to keep your structure near the 0,0 location, which I showed in the video, although I was not clear about this.

 

Centering the drawing sheet moves the sheet to your structure which may be located far away from 0,0.
