The AutoCAD Sheet Set Manager organizes, displays, and manages sheet sets, a named collection of drawing sheets. Each sheet in a sheet set corresponds to a layout in a drawing (DWG) file.
The Sheet Set Manager creates a list of DWG files and the layouts they contain and saves that information in a DST file. The DST file can be opened in AutoCAD to access any of the layouts.
The Sheet Set Manager provides a graphical interface for arranging sheets that will appear in a DWF file and the order in which those sheets will appear. All layouts in a DWG do not need to be referenced by the Sheet Set. The Sheet Set Manager provides an optimal way for creating a multisheet DWF file in that the Sheet Set Manager has its own PUBLISH command.
- The "Publish" pull down of the Sheet Set manager includes items for "Publish to DWF," "Publish using Page Setup Override," and "Publish Dialog." The "Publish using Page Setup Override" results in a separate DWF file per sheet. This is typically not desirable for sharing with others. The "Publish Dialog" should be used instead. You can use the "Publish Dialog" to import the page setup from a template DWG and apply its settings to all of the sheets.
- Although this limitation may be lifted in future versions, the Autodesk DWF Viewer and Autodesk Design Review (formerly known as Autodesk DWF Composer) work optimally with DWF files that contain 250 sheets or less.
