Illustrated Guide: Using the Drawing Resource Transfer Wizard

The Drawing Resource Transfer Wizard is a handy tool for copying title blocks, borders and sketch symbols between drawings. This is particularly useful if you are ever tasked with updating the title blocks of a multitude of different drawings. Below is an illustrated guide demonstrating how to perform this action efficiently.

1. Before beginning, ensure that you have one drawing with the updated title block / border.

2. Start the Drawing Resource Transfer Wizard via the start menu in Windows.

3. Select the drawing from which the drawing resources (title block, border and sketch symbols) will be copied.

4. Next, select the drawing resources that are to be copied.

5. Select the drawings which are to receive the copied drawing resources.

6. Execute the copy. Decide whether or not you wish to overwrite existing drawing resources (i.e. overwrite a title block which bears the same name).

7. Within each of the drawings, the new title block, border and sketch symbols are available as drawing resources. Where required, delete existing borders/blocks/symbols, and insert the newly copied resources.

As you can see, with the Drawing Resource Transfer Wizard, performing bulk updates to drawings needn’t be painful.
