    Sheets are used for printing, while views are actual workspaces that can be placed onto sheets for printing. 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:


    Here is an explanation of the differences within duplicating a view:

    Duplicate View

    • Duplicates a view and all objects that are considered part of the Model.

    Duplicate View with Detailing

    • As above but also includes any Text, Dimensions and detail items etc.

    Duplicate as Dependent

    • Duplicates a view exactly as seen. Any changes in one view will affect the other. This is also used when you need to place the same view on more than one drawing sheet.
