Paper Space Sheets

Create Custom Paper Space Sheets

Each AutoCAD file that you create for an SI 5 Project starts with four paper space tabs: ANSI B – 11x17, ANSI C – 17x22, ANSI D – 22x34, and ANSI E – 34x44.  You do not have to use all or any of these pages if you prefer to create your own.  If you want to use the provided sheets, you may want to replace the D-Tools logo with your own logo (we don’t mind if you leave the D-Tools logo though, J).

Example: In this example, the following logo is used:

The logo that you insert must be in .dwg format.

1)    Browse to the following location: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\D-Tools\SI5\Templates\AutoCAD. 
(VISTA:  C:\ProgramData\D-Tools\SI5\Templates\AutoCAD ) Double-click the template you wish to edit.  In this example, the Elevation.dwg was selected.  The following steps will need to be completed on each template.
