Updated October 02, 2020

This article applies to:
  • RoadEng Civil
  • RoadEng Forestry

In these exercises, we will create and retrieve Chapter layouts, copy and paste multi-plot items, explore a couple of new sub-views and save the result for future use.

This exercise will add a title block to a Multi-Plot sheet. We will do this by opening an additional the current Multi-Plot with a commonly used title block screen layout.

1.  file.JPG File | Open <RoadEngCivil>\Location\Align Stage 10.dsnx.

2.  Select and <delete> the existing title block items so that only the Plan, Profile, scale bar remain.


3. Multi-plot | Add New Chapter | Retrieve Other Layout. Select screen layout <Defaults and Layouts>\Training\Title Block.clt.  Press Open.

You will now have a second chapter with the title block we would like to copy.

4. Click and drag from the top right corner to select all the sub-views (rectangles in this case) of the title block as shown in Figure 26‑16.

5. Type <Ctrl + C> to copy the selection to the clipboard (or use menu Edit | Copy).


6.  Click on the PlanProfile chapter. Type <Ctrl + V> to Paste the title block on your page (or use menu Edit | Paste).

Your screen should appear as shown below:


7. We can save our new Plan profile chapter layout for future use: Multi Plot | Save Chapter to open the Save Chapter dialogue. (optional)

8. We no longer need the Default chapter. Click on Default in the navigation panel, <right-click> select Delete Chapter.
