Sheet Composition

In Ideate SheetManager you can drag and drop unplaced views onto your sheets. After searching for the desired views (Read: Searching Sheets), use select, or multi-select to drag the views onto the desired sheet on the Sheets side of the UI.

Use Ctrl+Select to select more than one view, then with the Ctrl key still selected, drag the views onto a sheet on the right-hand side as shown. When views are placed on a sheet they will automatically be assigned to a viewport type per the Settings.

View Placement

Views that are dragged from Ideate SheetManager can be dropped onto the sheet as shown above or directly onto an open Revit sheet. When views are placed on a sheet they will either be arrayed within the empty space of sheet or will be placed along the top of a sheet when other views are already present.

Centering Placed Views

When multiple views are selected within Ideate SheetManager and are dragged and dropped onto an empty sheet, they will be arrayed within the empty space of that sheet. The image below shows the result of four sections that are dropped at the same time onto an empty sheet.

The size of the empty space is defined on a per title block basis. Learn how to define the available empty space within the Settings topic.
