Trying to create a set of sheets with a specific title block and border is very confusing. My concept from old is to start with a plain piece of paper, draw a border, and add a title block, revision block, etc. Most companies will preprint these forms on different size drawing paper so that the draftwman/engineer only needs to haul out a blank preprinted form and go to work. My effort using blocks ends up with a block when I go to the workbook environment. There is nothing logical on startup here. I need a clear tutorial on how to set up the drawing sheet parameters.

Charles, How to use sheet borders is dependent on your workflow. You may notice that you cannot select the geometry that is displayed for the border. This is by design. The geometry for the sheet border resides on a background sheet. You can create as many background sheets as you need. Each one can have different geometry such as different title blocks. A working sheet (Sheet1) has properties where you specify which border to display. Right Mouse Click on the Sheet1 tab at the bottom of the application window. Click on the Background tab in the Sheet Setup dialog. The background sheet combo box allows you to select which background to display for the sheet you are working on. To create a new background sheet. Click on the 'View' menu item at the top of the application window. Then click on 'Background Sheets' in the dropdown. This will enable all the background sheets in the current file. You will notice now that there are more sheets displayed at the bottom of the application window. These are the backgrounds that are available in the combo box I mentioned before. You can create new geometry or modify existing geometry on these backgrounds. You can create new backgrounds also. Right mouse button click on one of the background sheets and click on Insert. A new background sheet will be created. You can copy geometry from one of the existing background sheets and then paste onto the new background sheet. You can rename the background sheet. Once you have created all the background sheets you need, turn off the background sheets by clicking in 'View-Background Sheets' again. Save the draft file to the 'C:\Program Files\Solid Edge 2D Drafting V19\Template\More' folder. Give it a unique filename. Now when you create a new Draft file, use your template to create the new Draft file. The new Draft file will have your background sheets in it. Regards, Rick B.
