Questions about Sheet Formats, Rulers and Automatic Border tool "?"

  • Back before the days of Automatic Border, users had to sketch in their own drawing borders on their Sheet Formats.  To aid in this effort, Rulers where turned on automatically when entering the Edit Sheet Format mode.  This didn't just help when sketching borders, but also the title block and placing text too.  However, it's been several years since Automatic Border was introduced.  The question I have is, do we need to automatically turn rulers on anymore when you edit your Sheet Format?


  • Another question is, for those who using the Edit Sheet Format mode a lot but not actually editing the sketched sheet format elements, why are you entering Edit Sheet Format mode so often?


  • Last question, the first step you encounter when launching Automatic Border is the PropertyManager asking you to select sketch entities to delete.  The reason this page of the PropertyManger exists is to help people to quickly convert Sheet Formats that used old sketch borders to ones that have the Automatic Border. Do you feel this page of the PropertyManager for Automatic Border is still useful today?  Have you converted your legacy Sheet Formats?
