Try again move drawing to another sheet

N/A

I have a finished drawing on a D sheet. when printed out it is to cluttered about
12 different parts on 8 1/2 x11 . I did figure out how to move things from a working
sheet to a drawing sheet( calling ) the sheet with the Title block the drawing sheet.
I want to move some of the different parts drawn to a new Drawing sheet . And I
have nothing to click on the sheet buttons are grayed out. and do not work are
inactive . I do not know if it makes any difference but the Drawing is Titled and
named and numbered. I can move a part on the drawing but have no place to move it
to can not call up a new sheet Thanks in advance

Lane,
I think there are multiple questions here. So I will try to to give multiple
answers.
You can create more sheets by simply right mouse button clicking on the
Sheet1 tab at the bottom and then click on Insert. This inserts a new sheet.
If you need to change the size if an existing sheet, right mouse click again
on the Sheet1 tab and click on "Sheet Setup...". Look at the tabs in the
dialog. Click on the Background tab. This allows you to define which
background (border) to display. you can create as many backggrounds
(borders) as you want.
Sheet1 is a working sheet. Each working sheet may be assigned a background
sheet. This background sheet displays the border. Do not use background
sheets for geometry placement. They are only used as the border/title block
display for a working sheet.
If you need to move something from one sheet to another sheet, select what
you want to move. Copy what you have selected. Go to the other sheet and
paste the geometry.
I hope this is what you are needing.
Regards,
Rick B.

Lane,
If you click on the existing sheet to make it active then right click on the sheet
tab at the bottom of the screen you should get a menu with the option to "Insert"
a sheet. See the attached screen print. Does this help?
