    Sheets are used for printing, while views are actual workspaces/views that can be placed onto sheets for distribution. A view can only be placed on one sheet and cannot be used in multiple sheets at one time. In order to have a similar view placed in multiple sheets, you must duplicate the Views as Dependents and place the new view onto the sheet:

    Below is a break-down of the differences within duplicating a view:

    • Duplicate View - 1

    Duplicates a view and all objects that are considered part of the “model”. Things that are detail items, such as detail lines, hatches, text annotations and detail groups will now show up in the new Duplicated View. Any new changes to the views won’t affect the other.

    • Duplicate View with Detailing - 2

    Duplicates a view with all model items and detail items. Any new changes to either the old or new view won’t affect the other.

    • Duplicate as Dependent - 3

    Duplicates a view exactly as seen. Any changes in one view will affect the other.
