adding a customers format to an existing drawing


New member

I am working on wildfire. I am trying to add a customers format (A1) to encompass an existing drawing (A2) size. I have the customer drawing format in three file types (dxf, drw, igs). I have tried to Insert shared data without luck. Can anyone give me some direction?

Have you created the format first? File > New > Format, then insert data from file (either igs or dxf).

(Insert shared data is typically for creating data sharing features like copy geoms, shrinkwraps, publish geoms, etc.)

Then in WF, double click on the Sheet Size to access the Page Setup dialog box, and Browse to the new format you've just created.
