Replicate Legend/View on sheets

Win64, English

Pangolin tools
Duplicate a Viewport from one sheet to multiple other sheets. Works with Legends, Schedule Graphics, and any type of View. Your new Viewports will automatically be placed at the right location.

General Usage Instructions

The workflow is very simple :

  • Make sure you have placed your Legend/View on at least one sheet
  • Start the add-in and click on the Viewport containing your Legend/View
  • You will be asked to check all the sheets on which you want to replicate it
  • If you are going to proceed multiple sheet sizes, choose the anchor point so that your new Viewports will be aligned at the right location
  • Let the magic happen and ask yourself: "Why was it so complicated before ?!"
