Drawings can be created out of views from the current project file, or imported from external ARCHICAD project files. External drawing and picture files as well as PDF files can also be placed on the layout. All these placed items are collectively called Drawings.
You can arrange and manipulate placed Drawings on the Layout as needed. (Although you can place any number of ARCHICAD views on a Layout, you cannot embed views within each other.)
By default, when placing model views onto a Layout, the placed drawing’s frame will be adjusted to show only the zoomed area of the model. (This default setting can be changed in Options > Work Environment > More Options.) Once the zoomed view is placed, you can later opt to readjust the frame to fit other parts of the model view, either manually using pet palette commands, or using the Fit Frame to Drawing radio button in Drawing Settings.
You can customize the size, scale, title and framing options for your drawings in the Drawing Settings dialog box.
