4.    Choose File О Save As. In the File Name text box, type a name for the standards file.

AutoCAD saves the drawing standards file.


You can use an existing drawing for your standards file. But be careful to purge all layers, linetypes, dimension styles, and text styles that you don’t want.

Associating a standards file with a drawing


Once you have your standards file, you associate it with a drawing that you want to check, using the new STANDARDS command. To associate a standards file with the current drawing, follow these steps:


1.    On the new CAD Standards toolbar, click Configure Standards. (You can v also choose Tools 1! CAD Standards 1! Configure or type standards J.)


2.    On the Standards tab of the Configure Standards dialog box, shown in Figure 26-6, choose the + button.




In the Select Standards File dialog box, choose the standards file you want to use and click Open.


You can associate more than one standards files with the drawing. Just continue to click the + button and choose more standards files.


4. Click OK to close the Configure Standards dialog box and return to your drawing.


Note You don’t need to use the Plug-ins tab of the Configure Standards dialog box. This tab lists standards plug-ins that define the way the properties are checked. Currently, only layers, linetypes, dimension styles, and text styles are each checked, using their respective plug-ins. This mechanism is designed so that Autodesk or a third-party developer can add (in the future) standards plug-ins for checking other drawing properties — perhaps, named views or layouts.
