Copy a drawing to a new sheet

You can copy a drawing to a new sheet. This is useful, for example, if you want to have the same layout and views as in the original drawing, but highlight something else on the new drawing sheet.

  1. On the Drawings & reports tab, click Drawing list.
  2. Select the drawing that you want to use as the original for copying.
  3. Right-click and select Create Drawings > Copy to new sheet .

    Tekla Structures copies the original drawing to a new sheet and gives the copied drawing a new sheet number.

  4. Open the new drawing sheet, make the necessary changes and save it.

If you use the Recreate ( Shift+R ) command for the copied drawing in Document manager , Tekla Structures asks if you want to copy the drawing again from the original drawing. If you answer yes, the previously copied drawing sheet will be replaced by a new copy of the previously selected original drawing.
