Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating viewports, part of Up and Running with Vectorworks.
…Now that we have our finalized designs, well,…at least until the customer calls, we can begin to lay out our final printed pages.…To do this, we will create what are known as sheet layers.…Each sheet layer represents a printed page in our drawing package.…Each sheet layer is also what is known as one to one.…This means, everything on the sheet layer will be the same size as when…it's printed on the final paper.…Text will be real height, and a sheet layer will have the same dimensions and…limitations of the final paper you will print your designs on.…
This concept means the designs we've created will need to be scaled to…fit on our sheet layer.…To this end, we will use view ports as a window to scale our designs.…The concept of view ports can be a tricky one to grasp, so take your time,…re-watch the video as necessary, and of course, practice on your own designs.…Let's get started with creating our sheet layer.…I'll open the Organization dialog box, go to Sheet Layers and click New.…I'm going to number this sheet 1 and call this sheet, Collar.…
