how do i align the drawings in the layout?
the pencil cursor doesn't seem to pick on the other added drawings.

i managed to get a draft in 11 x 17 via pdf using the acrobat distiller.
lsid wrote:Of course you are doing this in PlotMaker. BUT - don't save as, Publish! Save a QuickView, previously defining a layer combination and a display options set, for one storey, save as QuickView. Then go one storey up, save QuickView, and so on - or, save a cross storey Quick view. Now go to eh Publisher, define a Publishing set. This all had been discussed to GREAT length at the times of 7, two years ago ... see it on eScribe.
as for the drawing alignment, i layout the added drawings in plotmaker. the drawing file has 3 stories; so i saved each story in pmk.

the other way, which seems rather cumbersome is i copy and paste the other stories onto the main flloor and layout them in archicad and then add this drawing into pmk.

what is the best way to layout the added drawings?
