The Worksheet window provides a dedicated environment for 2D model-based drawings, such as partial floor plans and partial sections, and for drawings created entirely in 2D. Worksheets can be used as a dedicated environment for finishing drawings using 2D tools, and for working with consultants limited to 2D methods.
You might want use a Worksheet to add a diagram or organizational chart, which is totally independent of your model, yet useful for your documentation.
As in the Detail window, elements on the Worksheet consist of 2D-only duplicates of any construction elements in “exploded” form (e.g. 2D lines and fills). Only 2D tools are available in the Worksheet window.
You may find that the “exploded” 2D elements generated from the model often contain superfluous elements (extra line segments, overlapping or superfluous fills) that make such editing difficult. To make editing easier, first use the Linework and Fill Consolidation functions on selected items in the window.
You can place a Section marker onto a Worksheet to create a Drawing-type section. You can also place a Detail marker onto a Worksheet to create a Drawing-type Detail. Such Drawing Sections and Drawing Details cannot be refreshed based on the content of the Worksheet window.
The Worksheet tool is active in any window. It has marker and linking options similar to those of the other ARCHICAD marker tools (Section, Detail).
To open a Worksheet window, double-click its name in the Navigator. (You can also access Worksheets through the Go command of the Mini-Navigator Toolbar, or from the Window > Navigate > Worksheets menu, or from the Window menu.) Use the available 2D drawing tools, place objects, text, labels, or paste an existing drawing into the drawing window.
