After you have organized drawings into a sheet set, you can publish, transmit, and archive the sheet set as a package.
  1. Publish a sheet set: Use the Publish feature to output the sheet set or a saved sheet set selection to a plotter in either normal or reverse order. You can create single and multiple-sheet DWF, DWFx, or PDF files from a sheet set or portion of a sheet set.
  2. Set options for properties to include in a published DWF, DWFx pr PDF file: You can decide what types of information to reveal in your published DWF, DWFx, or PDF files. The types of metadata that you can include are sheet and sheet set properties, block properties and attributes, dynamic block properties and attributes, and properties contained in custom objects. Metadata is only included when you publish to DWF or DWFx; it is not available when plotting to DWF or DWFx.
  3. Transmit a sheet set: Package and send a sheet set or a portion of a sheet set over the Internet.
  4. Archive a sheet set: Package a sheet set or portion of a sheet set for storage. This is very similar to packaging a transmittal set, except that you specify a folder for the archive, and you do not transmit the package.
