Streamlined Output

AutoCAD 2000 offers many new features and improvements to give you greater flexibility and control of your output. These features include the new multiple layout concept, the ability to create nonrectangular viewports, the addition of lineweights as an object property, and a more flexible plotting interface.

Layouts—Multiple Paper Spaces

You can now create multiple paper space layouts in a single drawing with AutoCAD 2000’s Layouts feature. You can visually compose a drawing on a “virtual” sheet of paper aided by such visual cues as plotting area. Configure a layout for plot scale, paper size, plot area, or paper orientation, and the plotting device becomes a fast, straightforward task. Multiple drawing layouts allow you to consolidate multiple drawing sheets into a single drawing file. Figure 1.24 shows the new Model and Layout tabs. You will learn more about multiple layouts in Chapter 19, “Paper Space Layouts.”
