- So we're now gonna create our template.…We're in CH07-01 and this is called Template start.…We're gonna create a template…that looks something like this,…it's just a very simple logo,…a bit of text, few lines and a border.…This border is ten mil off the edge of the page.…I've set up this on an A1 sheet,…but if you want to use the Arch sizes…or a different size sheet…then you're more than welcome to do that.…Principles are exactly the same.…A couple of other things…that we need to be aware of before we start:…if you have a multiple-sheet-sized document,…then, unfortunately, even though we can create…as many pages as we want, they all have to be the same size.…
You can't embed a different page size in a different sheet,…which is a bit of a shame.…Also, zero zero as far as the sheet size goes…is up here and not down here,…which causes a few more problems.…So, ideally, you would want to create a document…with your A3 drawings on…and a document with your A1 drawings, et cetera.…So if you haven't gotten access to the files,…
