Q - question

How to insert layouts from another drawing?

A - answer You can import layouts (viewport definitions and paperspace objects) from another DWG file using the DesignCenter module or with the function Insert > Layout > Layout from template - i.e. with the command LAYOUT (or -Layout) with the Template option. Instead of the DWT template files you can select any existing DWG drawing and read its data of the selected layouts.

You can select multiple layouts at once with the Shift key (or using a list - in the commandline version of the command). Possible name collisions will be renamed automatically.
