Description

This tool allows you to put selected objects on a svg Drawing sheet.

Usage

  • Select objects you want to put on the drawing sheet.
  • In the same selection, add the page object you want to draw your objects to. If there is no existing page, a new one will be created. If you didn't select a page but there is at least one in the document, the first found one will be used to draw to.
  • The objects viewed on the Drawing page will take the hint scale and hint offset values of their host page. Be sure to set these values beforehand.
  • You can change offset and scale values of objects anytime
  • Set/adjust the Linewidth modifier. Higher value will result in thicker lines.
  • Set/adjust the Textsize modifier. Higher values will result in bigger texts.
  • If you selected an existing sheet, and the objects in the selection that are already on that sheet (for ex. for a "Rectangle" object there is already a "ViewRectangle" object on the sheet), they will be substitued. This allows you to simply select all the objects and send them to an existing page, which will simply be updated.
