Creating Profiles

ProSheets profiles make it easy to save your settings and reuse them later. It is also a handy way for BIM Managers to create standard rules (e.g., filename conventions) and share them across the organization.

Steps:

  1. In the window header, click on the plus (+) button next to the profiles list.
  2. Name the profile (give it a meaningful name because this is the name that will show up in the profiles list)
  3. Choose if you want to create a profile with the default ProSheets settings, with your current settings, or import settings from an existing profile.
  4. Click on the “Create” button to create the profile.
