Align drawings in layout

RainV

Hey!

 

Does anyone have a trick for aligning different drawings in seperate layouts? Or inserting drawings in the center of the layout.

 

I included a picture for better description. These are two elevation drawings.

 

Thank you!

RainV:
One option is to place a Hotspot at a common point (top of gable, grid marker, etc.), then select it and copy it to the other Layout, where it can be used to locate the second drawing on that Layout.
 
You should add a Signature to your Profile (click the Profile button near the top of this page) with your ArchiCAD version and operating system (see mine for an example) for more accurate help in this forum.

Hi @RainV ,

You can also trace reference another layout and align the drawings accordingly.
