Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating sheets, part of Learning Revit.
At some point in every project you need to print out a document set.…So in this movie I'd like to talk about working with sheets, both creating new…sheets and working with the existing ones that you already have here in the project.…And we'll set up those sheets and get them ready to print out as a set of documents.…So I'm in a file here called sheets. And I'm just looking at the prospective of…the dining room here for a moment. But if we scroll down here on the project…browser, you will see the sheets branch on the browser, and there are several sheets…already here in this project. Now if you followed through this course…since the beginning, then you recall that we started this project with the…commercial default template. That comes with the software.…
And that template included all of these sheets to begin with.…Some of these sheets even already have views on them, so you can tell the…difference with the ones that have the little plus sign next to them.…So this sheet right here, A1 first Floor is empty.…
Note: The techniques shown in this course will work with any version of Revit, but due to backwards compatibility issues, the exercise files for this course will only work with Revit 2014. Unfortunately, we cannot downsave the files. Please see a Revit 2013 course for usable files.

Q: Will Revit 2014 files work in a previous version of Revit? Will the exercise files for this course work in Revit 2013?
A: Revit file formats are not backwards compatible. A new file format is introduced with each new release. Newer versions of Revit can open older version files without issue. However, files will be upgraded to the latest file format during the initial open. Once saved in the current version, there is no way to save them back to a previous version. Therefore, it is important to consider this issue carefully and discuss it with all project team members before beginning a project. For example, it is not possible for the architect to use a newer version of the software than the consulting engineers and vice-versa. All members of the team must collaborate using the same version/file format. This course was authored using Revit 2014. Therefore, its exercise files can be used with any flavor of Revit (Architecture, MEP, Structure, or LT) 2014 and later. Files cannot be opened with versions 2013 and prior.
