Advanced Drawing Resizer helps you handle custom sheet formats combined with your special borders and/or title block(s).

General Usage Instructions

After the installation, the start button of Advanced Drawing Resizer is shown automatically when loading a drawing or creating a new one. The button is located at the ribbon "Place Views" in the category "Modify".

The main window is displayed by clicking the button displayed at the menu bar (see screenshot #4).

Choose a format shown in the selection area (1). After that, a short description appears (if entered while configuration) in the textbox (3). Now select all sheets you want to apply the format to in the selection area (2). The sheet first found is activated as standard (but can be de-selected).

By clicking the OK button (4), you finish the format change. The selected format (1) is being applied on all selected sheets (2) and the window is closed.

The window can be closed with the buttons (5) without doing any changes on the drawing.
