Export Location

ProSheets allows you to set an export path. The export path can be in your local computer or in a network location (i.e.: a path to a folder on a shared network drive).
This path is the will be used to save the files outputed by ProSheets.

Save all files in the same folder location

By selecting the option ‘Save all files in the same folder location’, ProSheets will create all files, regardless of the file format, in the same folder.

'Saving all files in the same folder location' is the default option. 

Save and split files by file format

By selecting the option ‘Save and split files by file format’, ProSheets will create subfolder to organize the files by file format (e.g., PDF, DWG, IFC, etc.).

Paper Size and Orientation

By default ProSheets automically detects the paper size and orientation of your sheets. The auto-detection feature runs automically and it is based on the Title Block dimensions (the built-in parameters Sheet Width and Sheet Heigh).

Manually set the Paper Size and Orientation

The auto-detection feature is handy in most scenarios but sometimes we may we want to set a specific size and orientation.

Steps:

  1. Use the checkboxes to select the sheets/views you want to change the paper size and orientation
  2. Click on the dropdown “Paper Size and Orientation”
  3. Pick the new values from the list
