Sheet Set Manager in ActCAD Software - Part 1

Sheet Set Manager

With sheets sets, you can collect and organize sheets (layouts) from various drawings in one location, which makes it easy to view, print, and distribute numerous layouts that are related to a single project. You can publish sheet sets to a printer or plotter and to the following file formats: PDF, DWF, and DWFx.

Sheet sets are saved in .dst files and are managed and published using the Sheet Set Manager pane. If you move a .dst file to another computer, its referenced .dwg files should also be moved.

Another way to publish drawings is using sheet lists which are saved in .dsd file and published using the Publish command.
