Sharing a macro for batch reloading of drawing sheet format. Here are some main points of the macro:


  1. It works for all drawing files in the selected folder.
  2. It works on all sheet and not just active or single sheet.
  3. It works with mixed sheet format sizes. You can add/edit sheet formats as needed.
  4. It detects the width of the current size and pick the required sheet format based on that.


Feel free to edit as needed. Suggestion/enhancements are welcome


Please backup your data before use.
