Do you have to change the scale of the views? (I would have thought so
if you're going to A from D).
If not - that is, if the only thing you're changing is the format,
then you could do the following:
Put all your drawing files in the same folder. Is there one D format
file? Copy it into the same folder as the drawings. Erase everything
except the format. Open the A format file, back it up into the same
folder as the other stuff. You should now have the A format and the D
format open, nothing else in session. Rename the A format D and rename
the D format A. You wil need to rename one of them twice because you
can't rename A to A when there is already a D in session.
You know, this is just file management, nothing that smart.
Unfortunately each view on each drawing has to be re-scaled. And to
add to the problem there are about six different "D" formats.
It looks like it is going to be a lot of work that I could do without.
I was hoping that someone has found an easier way.
Thanks for your reply.
I think it was a customer request. But how does this help with my
I suppose that the question should have been: "Is there an easy way to
change from an existing format to a different format, along with the
scaling of views and tables etc." Although judging from the replies it
seems that there is not.
Thanks for your replies. Peter
If you printed your drawings to PDF you can print them easily to an A
sized sheet, but of course everything gets smaller including the text.
I think the only answer is "no". There is no easy way to do this. You
could automate some of the process with mapkeys but that would still
be time consuming.
