Is there a way through a macro to separate a multi-sheet drawing so that each sheet becomes its own drawing? Any help/insights on this would be greatly appreciated.
As Grant has mentioned, use #TASK tool and explore the inbuilt drawing splitter.
There probably is a way. To me, it's probably faster to save-as and delete unwanted sheets and replace formats, then edit as needed. You will need to some of it anyway after a macro.
Yeah I figured. Some of the drawings have a lot of sheets so I was trying to avoid going down that repetitive route to save some time but that's probably what I'll end up having to do.
You might be able to use #Task but I did look through their drawings automation section and nothing jumped out at me. The "Copy Drawing with new reference" might work by only choosing to use half of the function but I don't think it is going to delete the pages that are no longer used.
SW also seems to retain a lot of information when drawings are split so I sometimes find it better to recreate the more simple drawings rather then split them. A newly created drawing seems to operate faster then one split from a larger file set.
Hopefully that helps a bit.
Thank you Grant and Deepak. This tool seems like it will do what I'm looking for.
Good eye Deepak. Apparently I was blind when I looked through that section. Glad we could help Ryan.

Yes team work!!
And I normally use the search inbuilt tool in the #TASK and that brings up all related tools
Interesting. I have never seen the Task tool. Thanks for the info!
