How Do I Apply Page Setup to All Sheets in AutoCAD?

AutoCAD is a powerful tool for creating technical drawings and designs. When working on multiple sheets or layouts within a single drawing, it can be time-consuming to individually apply page setup settings to each sheet.

Fortunately, AutoCAD provides a convenient way to apply page setup to all sheets at once. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process.

Step 1: Accessing the Page Setup Manager

First, open your AutoCAD drawing that contains multiple sheets or layouts. To access the Page Setup Manager, go to the Ribbon and click on the Layout tab.

Then, locate and click on the Page Setup Manager button. Alternatively, you can type PAGESETUPMGR in the command line and press Enter.

Step 2: Selecting Multiple Sheets

In the Page Setup Manager dialog box that appears, you’ll see a list of all the sheets or layouts in your drawing. To select multiple sheets, hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard while clicking on each sheet name.

Step 3: Applying Page Setup Settings

Once you have selected all the desired sheets, click on the “Modify..” button. This will open another dialog box where you can make changes to your page setup settings.

A) Paper Size and Orientation:

  • To change the paper size, select an option from the Paper Size dropdown.
  • To change the orientation (portrait or landscape), choose an option from the Orientation dropdown.

B) Plot Area:

  • To adjust the plot area, click on the “Plot Area. In the Plot Area dialog box, you can specify the area to be plotted by selecting a window, polyline, or other options.

C) Plot Scale:

  • To set the plot scale, choose an option from the Scale dropdown. You can also customize the scale further by clicking on the “Custom Scale.

D) Plot Style Table:

  • To apply a plot style table to all selected sheets, select an option from the Plot Style Table (Pen Assignments) dropdown.

Step 4: Saving and Applying Changes

After making all the necessary changes to your page setup settings, click on the “OK” button to save and apply these settings to all selected sheets in your drawing. You can also click on the “Cancel” button if you want to discard any changes.


If you need to make further modifications to individual sheets or layouts, you can always go back to the Page Setup Manager and make changes on a per-sheet basis. Simply select a specific sheet and click on the “Modify.” button again.

In conclusion,

The ability to apply page setup settings to multiple sheets in AutoCAD is a valuable time-saving feature. By following this tutorial, you should now be able to efficiently manage page setups for multiple sheets within your AutoCAD drawings. Remember that proper page setup is crucial for ensuring accurate and professional-looking prints or exports.

Happy drawing!
