Drawing Layouts
KeyCreator \ Layout \ Overview \ Drawing-Layouts

Layout mode allows you to create one or more layouts of your parts for drafting presentations and for purposes of blueprinting. Using Layout mode, 2D representations of your custom models can be displayed using an array of different views, display methods, and detailing tools.

The Layout options can be accessed from the Layout pull-down or palette submenus. When a .CKD file contains a layout (or multiple layouts) this will be reflected in the Design tab of the Tree Window. The layout(s) appear immediately below the part name and can be accessed by right-clicking on the layout.

NOTE: Some layout options will be grayed out when Model Mode is the active mode.
